Can you fix all the world’s problems in a garden? If you ask world-renowned permaculture teacher Geoff Lawton the answer is a definitive yes.
Now, if it’s possible to turn a desert in Jordan into a thriving productive natural system (as you’ll see in the video) with the help of permaculture principles, imagine what you can do in your own backyard.
Geoff was the man who introduced me to permaculture many years back and I went on to study under him to earn my permaculture designer certification. He’s a true inspiration when it comes to designing more resilient communities built around local and natural production systems in balance with nature.
The video below begins with the famous original ‘Greening the Desert’ five minute video clip, and then continues into Part II, a 2009 update to the 2001 original.
