This table is an enormously beneficial resource, thanks to all involved. So many new additions to my library.

Is it ok if I suggest books that I've found eminently useful?
Geoff Lawton recommended on Youtube: 'Gertrud Franck (Companion Planting: Successful Gardening the Organic Way)'
It's a little dry with a lot of reflections on space-utilization, but the home-garden scale and no-nonsense descriptions suit my purposes quite well.

I can also recommend Permaculture: Principles & Pathways Beyond Sustainability by David Holmgren.
It's not a practical guide, but uses theory and symbols to expand your conceptual vocabulary around permaculture.

Finally, Biochar for Environmental Management by Johannes Lehmann & Steven Joseph
This is an incredibly dense, dry technical review of biochar studies up to 2015.
It ranges from biochar microscopy to global impacts of future biochar markets to case studies.
It's not a practical guide, it's quite inaccessible, but it's excellent food for thought for an environmentally-minded policy wonk (like me).
Foreword and Chapter 1 are free on it's website.
 
We noticed he had no friends. So we gave him this tiny ad:
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
