Let's start a list of books related to biointensive farming and growing lots of food in relatively small spaces.

One Circle: How to Grow a Complete Diet in Less Than 1000 Square Feet by Dave Duhon & Cindy Gebhard

The title is somewhat misleading because most people actually can't grow a complete diet in that small an area, but the book does go into a lot of detail about how to grow a nearly complete vegan diet in the smallest possible space. I found it very helpful in trying to decide what to grow for staple foods and basic nutrition if one is limited as to space and/or one is trying to devise a barebones survival garden.

Ecology Action publishes a bunch of inexpensive pamphlets about Biointensive: https://www.bountifulgardens.org/departments/125

Here's one specifically about designing a mini-farm: https://www.bountifulgardens.org/products/BEA-0000

I think most of these were originally published a few decades ago.
