the network for communities building local resilience

I am looking for a researcher fluent in Bulgarian for helping with research into walnut production/development of new walnut varieties in the Balkan area. The research would be mainly internet based – tracking down academic articles on trials of new varieties, growers and suppliers.
The research is part of a wider project examining nut production in Europe.
Other regions of interest re nut-growing include Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania, Hungary, Romania and Moldova.
