Agroecology: Greening the Desert - Bringing the Dead Sea Back To Life - Permaculture
Less than 2 miles away from the Dead Sea, the desert comes to life, even though the local "experts" said it could not be done. Fruit trees bearing fruit within 4months... impossible. Soil becoming less and less salty... impossible. Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is a whole-systems approach to the design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems.
Advanced Cell Grazing – Permaculture Livestock Systems at Zaytuna Farm - The Permaculture Research Institute
The Zaytuna Grazing Method (ZGM), invented by Geoff Lawton, hybridizes a multitude of different animal management systems from Allan Savory to Joel Salatin and Regen Ag. The ZGM then incorporates a permaculture twist that will regenerate landscape and grow both productive food, crops, and even vegetation for other uses such as timber, nutrient accumulation, and wildlife habitat.
