Greening the Desert in Jordan – Geoff Lawton

Jordan is one of the most water-deprived countries in the world with most of the country receiving less than 7.87″ (200 mm) of rainfall annually and much of that evaporating before being of use for growing food. Permaculture projects are demonstrating a sustainable way to reclaim the desert. This site documents Geoff Lawton’s demonstration projects in Jordan. This video is an update of the project as of 5/21/18.

Here is Lawton’s TEDx talk about permaculture.
