Temperate climate Permaculture. I think this is important because it produce year after year with no replanting. The site has varied topics including alternative housing, water of course plants and more.
Buckwheat can be grown as a permaculre food that is fast to harvest.
Saffron Crocus sourse of the spice saffron ,most expensive spice in the world. I mature saffron corm will produce 10 corms to be planted expanding the crop rapidly. Saffron when the smell is inhaled for 20 minutes reduces anxiety ,has medical value and is great for cooking. I ate saffron rice yesterday and the color was as beautiful as the taste.
Lots on trees , shrubs and even mushrooms. They talk about raising animals and using wetland , more than I can mention.
Worth a look.
