The Forestry/Natural Resources Sector in the Office of Training & Program Support of Peace Corps would like to express its gratitude to everyone who assisted in the Solomon Island Agroforestry In-service Training workshop. The following people deserve a special note of thanks for their contribution and support: Harold Senter and Ian Knight who lead training sessions and donated numerous hours to the workshop without any financial compensation; to Graham Richardson and the staff of the Solomon Island Broadcast Corporation where the workshop was held; to the staff of Peace Corps Solomon Islands, including Carolyn Siota, Administrative Officer, Carol Kimball, Peace Corps Fellow/Acting APCD, Joanne Russa, Peace Corps Cashier, Yvonne Holt, Peace Corps Nurse and most importantly, Richard Mullaney, Acting Peace Corps Director; to the Manager and staff of the Hotel Mendana where the participants resided while in the Solomon Islands; to Kara Teati, Chief Field Officer of the Solomon Islands Agricultural Extension Service; Barnabas Likiopu, Extension Officer; Stephen Colbert of the Solomon Islands Development Bank for material support rendered.
Any workshop requires a great deal of planning. Bruce Burwell and John Schenk were of particular help during the pre-research and planning phase of the training program as well as in rendering continual assistance during the workshop and facilitating many of the training sessions. To Bruce and John a special thanks from the staff at Peace Corps/Washington.
We would also like to acknowledge the cooperation of former Peace Corps Director/Solomon Islands Frank Juska. Through his initiative and enthusiasm, the Solomon Islands was chosen as the site for this In-service Training.
