Plants for a Future is a project based in Cornwall which seeks to
gather together and disseminate information on the many useful
properties of plants, partularly those plants which are less common in
todays society. They also have a beutiful patch of land which they are
tending according to vegan-organic-permaculture
principles. and concentrating on Perennial plants.
They have produced many leaflets (show below) as well as a
of plants available from them. One major project has been the
construction of a
database of useful plants which contains over 7000
species, which is now avaliable
The project has reciently been granted charity status reg. no. 1057719.
The next exciting phase of the PFAF project will be the creation
of an Eco-Village. This will enable
a truely sustainable community to develope where all the needs
are catered for by using plants grown on site.

or just want to say hi please send me a mail
I'd also be interested to find out how you came across these pages.
I should point out that I (Rich Morris) am just a friend of the project
who though that the information was worth putting out, my knowleage
of Permaculture etc isn't that great. If you do have specific questions
about plants you should write direct to the project at the address
at the top of the page (they don't have an electronic address, in fact
they don't even have electricity).
Wow we've got one of those best of the web type awards. Who'd have thought it.

site in December on
Nice one to
School of Computer Science
at Leeds Uni for the web space.
