Open-day, Organic bazar and Guided Farm Tour by Geoff Lawton 7th of December 2019
ABOUT THE LOCATION
The site is located at the lowest point of the earth in one of the most testing climates’ to practice Permaculture. With arid soil and very little rainfall, you will be viewing Permaculture practices at their maximum potential.
The local population is made up of traditional Bedouin tribes and long-term refugees stemming from displacement of local populations from within Palestine. The project site is typical of the area – a marginal arid land low-income settlement.
At the project site you will see examples of energy-efficient appropriate housing with natural cooling systems, arid climate plant nursery, solar electricity, solar hot water, biological waste water treatment recycling, dry compost toilets, rain water harvesting earthworks and diverse interactive plant, animal and tree systems for local food production and processing.
The project site features an eco-lodge, permaculture cafe and gift shop, administration office for the project and the local Permaculture group.
The project permaculture gardens are designed a model that can be replicated within the local village, throughout Jordan and other countries in the region.
