I believe Edible Acres in New York state sells sea berry and many other cuttings.

I also recommend Garlic Chives!  They are utterly unkillable and pollinators love the flowers.

I’ve had great success using deep mulch of tree and shrub prunings, leaves, and wood chips to transform an overly hot exposed rocky clay soil.  About three years ago the garden was a dead Bermuda grass lawn with a couple of tiny sad fruit trees. Now the little peach tree is huge and bearing peaches.

Beware of the weight of the assembled forest!  Make sure you have adequate equipment to transport them.

It's important to have some filtered shade over vegetables during the summer, in my experience. I grow Moringa, which freezes to the ground but comes back and can grow 10 feet in a season. Honey Locust might also work.

I'm in central texas. I tried aquaponics and failed miserably, killing multiple batches of fish and producing almost no vegetables. It was expensive to set up and never paid for itself.

Once you locate the area you want to grow in, try to connect with local permaculturists.  They may know of someone who wants to sell or bequeath land. For instance, our ultimate plan for our land is to find a younger person or family to live here and eventually inherit our place. Paul's OTIS program (I might be getting the same wrong) is about connecting older land owners with younger people looking for land.

I'm following the Grocery Row Garden model in both my main food garden projects. The most developed is the one at my friend's yard in San Antonio Texas. Thank you, David, for being such a constant source of inspiration.
