PFAF – it’s the Permaculture Designer’s bounty of plant info
One of the truly great resources for Permaculture designers is the plant database of “Plants for a future” (PFAF). Based in Cornwall, England, PFAF have so far catalogued over 7000 edible, medicinal and generally useful plants and sorted them in a magnificent searchable database.
In our humble opinion, there is no single better source for designers to find the right plants for their designs. Whether you are a gardener hoping to discover amazing alternatives to the classic vegetables, or a plant lover excited to click through the more unusual and interesting plants from across the world, this site has something for everyone.
Help PFAF help us!
PFAF’s big project for 2017 is to extend their database by 700 new tropical plants to their database, and are calling for donations to enable them to do just that.
Have a wander through their database or their helpful categories here, gape your mouth in awe by the thoroughness and useful categorization and if you have some dollars to spare, share the love and enable them to sort the wealth of knowledge about edible and medicinal plants for future generations.
