translations of teaching materials


Hello All,

I am working on translating organic gardening Fact Sheets that Washington
State U. ag agents produce.  Of course all 45 of them are in English and we
have funds to translate.  I wanted to know who has teaching materials in
what languages already so we don't re-invent the wheel.  I will happily
share all fact sheets we have translated with anyone who is interested.
