shameless self-promotion

Hello all--

[big apologies for cross-postings]

No, it's not election-related.

I'm looking for a way to combine my interest in food and agriculture
issues with my research and writing skills.  I'd be in seventh heaven if
I could spend all day doing online and print searches, synthesizing and
reporting the data for someone *and* see communities benefit as a
result.  Instead of the journalism or academic route, I'd like work
directly with organizations who can use the info.  I've had brief
experience with grantwriting, which I enjoy, but still my favorite part
is digging out the supporting details.  Gathering material into a
library or database would be very satisfying too.

Does anyone have any tips, leads, advice for me?  (Other than, "Finish
that thesis, already!")

Many thanks,
212 South Derek Drive
Fullerton, California 92831-4411
