I haven't come across any permaculture books for Northern California, but "Golden Gate Gardening" is a good general resource for edibles. The California Rare Fruit Growers association might also be helpful.

Welcome Fiesta.

Perhaps you can find some of what you're looking for in "West Coast Food Forestry, a Permaculture Guide" by Rain Tenaqiya. There are many examples of polycultures in there.
"Another kind of Garden" by Jean Pain may be of interest to you since he worked in Southern France.
There's also a lengthy registration of a workshop in Crete by Darren Doherty you can find on youtube.

"Water Harvesting for Agriculture in the Dry Areas" by Oweis et al deals with many ancient and modern ways of farming with rain water only. A very interesting book if you don't mind a technical approach.

Good Luck!

I am still hunting for Mediterranean information and I found this website and the practical info was really good!

Has any one read this book? Jones, Louisa 2012 Mediterranean Landscape Design, Thames & Hudson, London.
