I'd like to take the opportunity to introduce a new website for people interested in permaculture. It's a tool for creating and sharing permaculture guild. It's absolutely free to use and I hope will fill a need for a central place for people to go and share their existing guilds or to develop potential guilds.

Please take a second to check it out and give your honest feedback. It would be much appreciated and I hope will become a valuable asset to the permaculture community.

This looks like a very cool tool, can't wait til there is more user-generated content.  Can't wait until I have guilds established enough to generate some content myself.

WTF ?

Take a look at terms of conditions, and know where you put your feet ...

Looks useful. Maybe under the "moisture" dropdown you could add a "mediterranean" option (alternating wet and dry seasons)? Also in the moisture dropdown, "well-drained" could be a characteristic of any of the other moisture options ... perhaps that should be a different dropdown altogether (i.e. "drainage:" slow, medium, fast).

Along these lines, I've though before that a Guild Generator could be a useful tool. Imagine a database containing something akin to the data in the appendices to Jacke and Toensmeier's Edible Forest Gardens. A user could enter search criteria (climate zone, moisture, light, etc), and the tool could spit back all plants matching those criteria. The user can then sift through this list to find plants that might be appropriate for her guild. It wouldn't be a substitute for careful observation and experience, but it could help narrow down the number of plants that might be appropriate in a given situation, or offer suggestions that one might not otherwise have thought of.

Sheesh. How long have I been using PFAF and never noticed the database search? Yeah, that's pretty much exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
