This weekend 8-9 april I will be giving a course on  organic gardens, from
the viewpoint of how each vegetable  fits into ecologic succession, where it
comes from, its native habitat,etc.  I have  reasonable information, but
would be most grateful if any of you know of a goldmine of this kind of
information  ( where the plants come from, who domesticated them, etc.)

Ernst Gotsch has been working them into his agroforet succession, when he
renews a field, with considerable success.  We are interested in creating
permanent systems for vegetables which mock the natural agroforest

Thanks a lot.
