Nitrogen Fixing Species for Agroforestry Systems I am currently working on a regenerative landscape design for a site in Todorovo, Bulgaria. The plan is to establish an agroforestry system known as alley cropping wherein rows of mixed species edible trees and shrubs are planted at intervals with spaces for herbs, forage and/or grain crops to be grown in between.

Arched Cabins can apparently be ordered in any length in a choice of 14, 16, 20 and 24-foot widths costing $200, $220, $260 and $320 per linear foot respectively. (They range from 12 to 19 feet tall according to the width.)
