As you might know, I serve as president of the Forage Center for Peacebuilding and Humanitarian Education, Inc., a 501 c3 corporation that offers experiential education and training for those interested in humanitarian and peacebuilding work.

We offer our flagship program twice a year, in March and in November, at our site in Fellsmere, FL, USA.  If you are interested in attending our November 2017 field training  – “Coastal Hope” – (November 2-5), go to our website for more information or contact us at
