TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

The plants have some traditional edible uses. Some Mexican farmers grow teosinte along with standard corn crops to allegedly strengthen production (probably unproven) while other corn farmers consider the species a weed.

vetiver


]Vetiver grass Unlike most grasses, which form horizontally spreading, mat-like root systems, vetiver's roots grow downward, 2–4 m in depth. This deep root system makes the vetiver plant very drought-tolerant and difficult to dislodge by strong current. ]The Vetiver system, a technology of soil conservation and water quality management, is based on the use of the vetiver plant.
A very interesting and widely used plant. (Vetiver is mainly cultivated for the fragrant essential oil distilled from its roots.)

Thru [sign in to see URL] it seems there are only suppliers of vetiver in Italy. I sent some emails and received the following advice for vetiver in Morocco:
I suggest that you contact Nabil El Shouk at The Farm; he has a goodly stock of Vetiver plants at all stages of growth.
The other partner is Jelloul Boubker whose address is: jboubker@[sign in to see URL] ; he is francophone and Arabophone, but does not speak much English.
I would write to him in English with the order and questions re: price. Add the following in French to the your email to Jelloul Boubker: “Merci de remettre ce couriel à NABIL EL SHOUK,” Merci!”
The price per bare root plant tillers must be around €[sign in to see URL], or about 3-4 Dirhams per double/triple bare root tiller.
Don’t hesitate to contact me for additional information. Kind regards,

bamboo


]Geoff Lawton vid

]Find one ([url=[sign in to see URL]

giganteus - giant bamboo
Biggest one.

pubescens / edulis - Moso bamboo
Hardy, large, and edible.

brandisii - Sweet Dragon Bamboo
Thick walled culms, high quality shoots, edible raw.

The first unique aspect of bamboo is that it can reach its full height and width in a single three-four month growing season. The clumps of new shoots grow vertically in this first season, and do not branch out or flower.
In the second year, the outside pulp-like wall of each stem or “culm” becomes dry and hard. The individual nodes begin to sprout small branches and leaves. In the third year, the culm fully hardens, and the bamboo shoot is now considered fully mature.
In the standard life cycle of bamboo, fungus and mold begin to develop on the outer culm within the first five to seven years of its life. Within the decade, the fungus and mold will overtake the bamboo, causing it to collapse in on itself. For this reason, harvesting bamboo for construction, flooring, or furniture is best completed after full maturity at age 3, until about age 7, depending on the species. []more]

Cover bamboo shoots from the Sun and they stay good tasting.

It's also possible to pickle bamboo.

Bamboo can be cooked and eaten but raw it contains cyanide. Cooking destroys the cyanide and certain species have less of it.

ley and foggage farming grasses


"Grass" is probably the most important crop for mankind and in mankind's history but ironically it's hard to get REAL insight into what the hell 'grass' actually is! Like it took me hours just to learn how to make cement, it took quite some research to acquire the following basics:

For now my research has led me that there are
- bluegrass
- ryegrass
- fescue
- bermuda grass
and many others, but these are the most common.
Bluegrass is what you'd call 'regular grass'.
Ryegrass is not rye, though rye starts out looking just like any grass.
Fescue is more weedy but Bermuda grass is much more weedy than fescue.
As well:
- bluegrass: nice lawn look, thick green
- ryegrass: good for high traffic areas
- fescue: high traffic and shady areas
- bermuda: for hot, sunny, and dry areas

This is important information when selecting grasses for ley farming, which require grasses with varying characteristics and demands. A ley farming lawn contains more than 20 species of grass; deep and shallow rooting, loving spring or summer heat, and other variables that soil, use, and climate pose. The decades-old lawns at Fordhall have at least 45 different species!
(There are many many different kinds of grass and my research continues.)

Timothy, clover, and alfalfa are also often mixed in with grass for pastural use.
To order grasses for ley farming seeding purposes is no easy matter! Some grass mixes contain perhaps 6 different kinds, though most no more than 3 or 4.
