True

I may have given the wrong impression. They represent different ways of thinking, but they can be used together. Building greenhouses, with plumbing and ventilation, a desalination plant, has an industrial component, but is very creative, especially if you have seawater (Water everywhere, and not a drop to drink.) and capital.

Reading the landscape, keylining or swaling to retain water, planting and grazing to advance the succession of a biome (the natural development of an ecosystem over time), aggrading soil (opposite of degrading), is a different endeavor.

But a seawater greenhouse, even row cropping, can be compatible, and perhaps provides necessary profit, if one is pursuing a productive, natural ecosystem for human food, with permaculture and/or holistic resource management.
