A big part of permaculture is building savvy about plant species.

I think it would be great if we could have a new species introduced each day.  So we end up with one thread for each species.  And in that thread we can talk about everything we know about that species.

I was thinking that some would appear in "organic practices", some would appear in "woodland care" and some would appear in "permaculture".

That sounds cool! Perhaps we could start one thread in each?

I think there is already a little of this already happening. 

I think if there was one new thread in each, each day, that would be fine.
