Hi Rachel, I sent a message to Merrill, perhaps she could forward it 
to you if it didn't make the network.  Peter Bane is from Tennessee, 
and Chuch Marsh is from North Carolina.  They have been doing 
Permaculture for quite a few years and have taught courses all over 
North America including more temperate climates like here in Ontario 
Canada.  They haven't taught courses elsewhere in the world but they 
have extensive travelling background investigating permaculture in 
Europe and Australia.  They do have plenty of information on what 
temperate climate plants and trees are useful in permaculture. Hope 
this helps.
