Permaculture In Jordan

Dave sent me this really cool video. Its about a man who has turned the desert into fertile land by using natural processes and sustainable methods. If he can do this in the desert just think what we could do in the heartlands of this country.

From the video

They laughed at him and said it couldn’t be done.
Nothing could be grown in that salt laden dustbowl.
But Geoff Lawton had other ideas.
He travels the world teaching others how to repair trashed environments that are beyond hope of becoming productive.
In this story, Geoff talks about re-greening the deserts of Jordan. By applying the principles of permaculture, the Jordanians managed to salvage a heavily salted environment and turn it into a green oasis.
Geoff lives and teaches at his farm near The Channon, a small community not far from Lismore. Geoff boasts that despite not having a police station or church, the Channon has some of the most tolerant and friendly people in Australia.

  1. I am sorry ota, but I could not find this video in any other format, and I don’t have the time to convert it right now. Flash is supported by just about every major computer platform, so perhaps you could visit a library or borrow a friends laptop, it really is a grand video.

  2. You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation however I
    find this matter to be actually one thing which I think I’d
    never understand. It seems too complicated and very extensive for me.
    I’m taking a look ahead in your subsequent post, I’ll try to get the cling of it!
