This is an interesting online book about agriculture (Part IV).  It was written in 1809 and has some interesting sections that sound a bit like permaculture. Just for your reading enjoyment!

older books have some great tricks.This was all before tractors,rototillers,and greenhouse so people actually had to find tricks that didnt involve industrial technologies.

Thanks for that, I'll have to give it a read.  Much of the relatively old knowledge is really quite relevant if you want to avoid the chemicals and industrial stuff.
 
this is supposed to be a surprise, but it smells like a tiny ad:
