Hi,

I found some of this Sea Kale like plants but I'm not sure they look a bit different. They taste quite well please help me to identify this plant! Maybe they are perennial?

Thank you!

Dear Permis,

I like to use elephant gras primary for windbreak, privacy shield, mulch source - hardiness zone 6 Europe. Which species would you recommend? Miscanthus x. Giganteus? Or other species for different uses too? Is there a edible species of such a grass? First I thought about bamboo but it grows not so fast and not so dense. Does a fruit tree tolerate such a grass? Close to my village there are some fields with elephant gras but nothing around to observe some influence. Maybe you know some plants which support or exchange nutrience with the mentioned gras so that I can build the right interconnections within my urban permaculture design - I live in the middle of a village in a settlement. Thank you for all your replies and ideas .

Hi,

have you ever heared of "Anil K. Gupta"? He collects inventions from the poorest of the poorest people in India and help them to get some return.

Please have a look his TED Talk:


E.g. at 12:34 he presents a clay pan! Because of the video of P. Wheaton video about the cast iron skillet I remembered Anil G. video about inventions.
So imagine you have a clay pit on your property and an mass rocket heater which you can burn the clay maybe your clay are able to make such clay pans!? Or
something better (http://www.sristi.org/hbnew/honeybee_innovation.php)!
The video is mind blowing to me what a blast to see all this genius people please have a look and imporve the ideas or adapt it to your inventions... limitation
leads to better designs a permaculture principle . A database of inventions: http://www.nif.org.in/bd/product_catalog/cv great stuff.
