    Hey Ben,

    How’s it going? I’m really just testing FOE’s site; but I am interested in a PC Response gig. It’d be great to do it back in Ecuador; however, my Spanish still sucks so I’m also checking out options in Guyana, eastern Europe, etc. as they present themselves.

    Despite the acronym, thanks to you and Josh for maintaining the FOE site!

  • I have a peace corps background(Malaysia 67-69) in tropical agriculture and 13 years as a FIG expert here in the southwest teaching fig propagation workshops in rural areas and creating part time jobs for people to sell their own propagated fig trees at growers markets throughout the state. I also have 40 years in wholistic healing, Massage as practitioner, instructor and as director of a school, administrator of other schools as well as examiner./ official tester for the state of New Mexico. I would love to take these skills and use them in peace corps response. So is there a way to do this by stating my skills rather than having to wait for job openings?…thank you…Lloyd Kreitzer, the fig-man of New Mexico
