Found this site while searching about permaculture... I'm new to permaculture and also relatively new to Iceland, so I have no idea about permaculture in cold climates. I had a more "conventional" but rather wild garden in mild middle Europe before, so I'm not completely new to gardening.

Right now we have: A garden full of giant dandelion, equally huge lovage everywhere around the house, untended rhubarb, some rowan-trees, a grassy patch where we want to start our veggies-garden next year, scented mayweed still blooming outside in a big pot, a window sill full of herbs, seeds for stuff I have no idea if they are ever going to grow here - and a 7 months old to keep us busy, so we have to start small

Maybe there are some people from Iceland (or other places with similar climate) who want to share experience, seeds, whatever...

one of the best ways to start is to get to know your native plants. some of them may be edible, medicinal, or good feed for animals. then you can encourage those species on your land.
another thing to think about is what others are growing in similar climates to yours in other parts of the world.

Hey, you are not alone.

I am doing really large efforts with permaculture in Iceland, to the possible, but so far I havenºt been able to grow a lot of food, but it certainly has been interesting.

I live in southwest Iceland, 30km north of Selfoss. And we are certainly open to share experiences!
