I am starting to think about what groundcovers I should plant. Florida Native Nurseries has a cool site. I am pretty sure my land is Sandhills in zone 8b according to their map.

This site has a good graphic of the layers of a food forest Temperate Climate Permaculture (scroll down to see it)


Just Fruits and Exotics They seem to have an awesome selection growing in North Florida about 2 hours away 30 St. Frances St. Crawfordville, Florida 32327

Flying Dragon Citrus Nursery 3973 Loretto Road, Jacksonville, Florida 32223 Has Citrus that grows in North Florida

Chestnut Hill Tree Farm 15105 NW 94 Ave Alachua, FL 32615 - They seem awesome and yes they have chestnut trees.


While my permaculture activity has pretty much been limited to watching youtube and listening to podcasts I have a big announcement!!!

I have a contract to purchase 21 acres in North Florida near White Springs. We should close by early April. I am really looking forward to this -- I know it will be a slow process but I am excited.
