When I was studying Syntropic Agroforestry, I was learning from Namastê Messerschmidt. He is Brazilian and so the course was translated into English with a translator while we were there. He would recommend some books and material, but at the time they were in Portuguese, for obvious reasons.
I was given a couple of PDF’s and decided to use Google Translate to translate them. Now, I will admit right now that the translations aren’t great, and ideally it’s better if it was professionally done. However it seemed to be enough for people to get an idea.
Along with the PDF’s I translated, I have added, and will continue to add, links and other resources in English for Syntropic Agroforestry in order to help share and spread this really interesting agricultural method.
If you have any excellent resources or books or anything else, please let me know in the comments so we can make this the most comprehensive resource list for Syntropic Agroforestry in English.
