Aloha,

Just stumbled over this long article on experiments with saline
agriculture, i.e. growing multifunctional plants that can handle
brackish groundwater in areas where that's all there is and salinity is
a persistent/systemic issue.  There are in this article some refreshing
evidences that concepts such as relations between elements and
context-appropriate bio-design are being noticed by people who have
likely never heard the word "permaculture."  And it's from the site of
the International Atomic Energy Agency...!
