Civilisation ain't the problem, mate, unless you're defining any group of people with an organizing ethos a "civilisation."

On the West coast, the nuts of the Bay Laurel are a really nice for a coffee-like beverage. Collect them in the early Fall, dry and roast them, grind the meats into a powder. Pretty high caffeine content too, with yerba mate (yaupon relative) has curbed my need for getting coffee recently.


This is really interesting, I had no idea the fruits of California bay laurel were even edible! Though it sounds like the caffeine thing might actually be a myth?



At the very least, they have some good nutritional value and high fat content.
Thanks for the fact check!


Non-pozzed version of that link for the gamers


Yaupon was a kind of a large underground plant meme when I lived below the mason-dixen.
Never tried the drink though, is it any good?


I've only had it from one source, but it's pretty decent IMO. If you brew it like a tea, it tastes a lot like yerba mate. You can also brew it by simmering it for 5 minutes, which weirdly (in my experience) mellows the flavor but makes it a lot darker and fuller-bodied, which is nice if you're actually going for a coffee replacement vibe.

wondering what insights, experiences, resources people might have re: arid lands. Going to dump some books I've found helpful below.

Permaculture: a Designer's Manual

about 1/5 of this tome is a section on various strategies for deserts, whether they're arid grasslands, dune fields, or rocky expanses. Most of the rest (pattern understanding, climate, etc.) can be applied directly to any place, and elements of the temperate, cold, and tropical sections can also be mined for information useful to our ends. just a good one to have in your toolkit for anybody!

Sowing Seeds in the Desert

Fukuoka puts forward a provocative vision of an accelerated dispersal of species worldwide - suggesting that the best way to "repair" the runaway effects of anthropogenic disturbance and desertification would be to encourage "invasives" to naturalize, even when they outcompete native species
