Lets just say you have the vast majority of your permaculture experience is from another planet (the tropics) but you will be spending a great deal of your future, especially the main growing season (May-Oct) An hour North west of Missoula in the 9 mile Valley. Where does one start? I'm all over Paul's Podcasts, but are there any projects with informative websites, essential videos to see?

Where I am, (Domincan Republic) It's al about food forests, staples coming from tree crops and perennial ground covers and tubas and aquaculture, bananas, squashes, multiple layers and non stop harvests etc. I know It's not going to be the same in Western Montana. I'm not a complete novice to the temperate climate (I grew up in the UK) but can somebody point me in the direction of some straightforward and digestible resources.


What are your favourite staple food crops?

If you were to have system mainly without animals, what are some essential plants or other things I should know about?

Is the growing season really only 90 days?

If you could visit 3 permaculture sites this summer, where would you go?

Thanks in advance for anyone that can help. Your time and info will go to good use, I'll make sure of that.
