Default Greening The Desert - Flash Player Of Turning "Dead Sea" Desert Into Green Oasis


In a few short years this stony desert was turned into a beautiful green oasis using permaculture techniques. This is the lowest place on the Earth 2 km from the Dead Sea in Jordan. Costs were minimal with some simple earthworks the most expensive item.



The powers that be will tell you it's impossible. They tell us we face certain disaster. That our "excessive" lifestyles mean "we" are destroying the planet blah, blah, blah...



Even without sexy technology that is suppressed, we still have simple soloutions for big problems.



We dont need a strong world government to save us. We dont need another "expert" asking for 20 million dollar grant to research the "soloutions". We just need top tell them all to get fucked and go about fixing the problems for ourselves.

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.
