Interesting Permaculture video and ideas

The authors show the use of animals to eat pests (turkeys to eat grasshopers, ducks and lizards eat slugs and snails, chicken eat the apple larvas)

In this video, found also a tree from himalaias, with lemon tasting fruit that cures cancer, a fern used as compost nitrogen activator, and a perfect edge schrub, with edible fruits and seeds.

Finally, the use of bamboos - fast growth and huge tensile strenght, they withstand the strengh of earthquakes, hurricanes or tsunamis, and provide also lots of others uses (e.g. around dam lakes) or are edible!
