GREENING THE DESERT (Video) Water Harvesting Methods

Here is a fascinating application of permaculture design methods to a desert environment. In this video Geoff Lawton designs a self-sustaining agricultural system in the country of Jordan on a desolate piece of land. (hyper arid, 10 acres of almost dead flat completely salted landscape, 400 meters below sea level, two kilometers from the Dead Sea, with very little rainfall, and temperatures over 50 degrees in August)
