The Miracle of Permaculture Part 1: Greening the Desert --The Jordan Project

Geoff Lawton of the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia narrates this short segment about a project in the Jordan desert, an area of 6 inches of rainfall a year.

Using passive rainwater harvesting, mulch, micro-irrigation and careful selection of plants they were able to transform the desert. This is one of the most hopeful pieces you may ever see on YouTube.

Greening the Desert
, is a segment from Water Harvesting the Permaculture Way, which although it is a region free DVD that is playable, is only available in the PAL television format, which is not used in the USA.
