I know there are some very nice Best Topics and Hot Topics lists as well as some great things in the Wiki. But do some of you long-timers have some threads that you feel are essential reading for those of us who are new to Permies? I'm thinking less about how-to-use-the-site threads and more about threads that deal with core permaculture and homesteading concepts that are of highest value and worth reading and re-reading.
