Free Ebooks: Cooking, Canning, Preserving & Food Topics. Free Home Economics & Cookbooks: Project Gutenberg. Plant Guilds Booklet Midwest US Permaculture. From the Forward As Midwest Permaculture grew, so did the number of requests from people looking for information and recommendations concerning what plants to add or combine to an existing tree on their landscape to create a useful plant guild.

Plant Guilds Booklet Midwest US Permaculture

We referred them to Midwest Permaculture’s “Official Plant Guy”, Bryce Ruddock, who chairs the discussions of Plant Guilds on our networking site. Eventually, we asked Bryce to design some foundational guilds as every day examples that would help guide those who are new to permaculture. After he completed these we asked a PDC student of ours, Jesse Tinges, to use his landscape architectural skills to create the sketches. We have been sharing these plant guilds with the students in our Permaculture Design Certificate Courses and they found these guilds to be so helpful and informative that we decided to make them available to the wider public with Bryce and Jesse’s blessings. Please use, experiment and enjoy!

@Eric Geller: It reminds me of the OLPC project, straight from the ivory tower of MIT.

CD3WD Archives the Information Necessary to Rebuild Society

It lacks a sense of priority... where the industrialized Western world thinks that so called 'third world' countries will do ok if tech is thrown at them. Imo it's an arrogant attitude, and an attitude that says that if we give them tech first, then everything else will follow. "So you're infrastructure is down and disorder is everywhere and there's no food or fuel.... No problem! Just draw upon that knowledge that you downloaded when you still had internet! @Eric Geller: More like a monetary problem. I don't know about that. Technology can be used as a multiplier to better utilize the resources that already exist. Think of this as the lifehacker for the rest of the world. Free Books: Off Grid & Homesteading.
