The heavily salty desert around the even more heavily salty Dead Sea in Jordan becomes a garden–without pumping in extra water or artificial fertilizer/herbicides. “We could green the entire Middle East in this way,” Geoff Lawton says in the film. Permaculturist Lawton notes that nearby degradative and self-destructive farms burn away the secret that could save their soil. The degradative farms burned off so-called ‘waste from agriculture’ and turned it into easily erodible and easily-lost ash because they were ignorant of what to do with it. For the permaculturist, these so-labeled wastes were a key feature of creating their oasis of desalinated soil in the desert, without adding any water artificially and just working with what they had to create solutions for everything. If you can green the Middle East in two years without synthetics and without working with expensive high-tech issues, it is truly miraculous.” Quoted from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ra89Y3WefQ Presented under Fair Use for educational purposes only.

    This is wonderful, with the drought in California, I think California could learn from this. I hope this continues to be successful!

    That is why places like the Fertile Crescent are slowly becoming less fertile lands.

    Large agricultural companies are erasing the ancient traditions of farming in which soil fertility is built over time.

    Arabs are living in the deserts from thousands of years, and they developed many ways to agricultural the desert, irrigation, building houses, … and there are many examples of that, Petra is one of these desert civilizations examples

    Why isn't it implemented everywhere in the world? In my homeland, Hungary experts say that "modern" agriculture is depleting the minerals from the soil so fast that in 60 years even with the heavy use of fertilizers it is not going to be able to sustain plants. I bet it's like this everywhere where industrial agriculture is prevalent.

I am sure that YOU are just another of HIS accounts, made to continue in your attempt to harass me. It won't work, YOU LOST, I am comfortable with the outcome. Hey JOHN, Feel free to delete and block this retard as well. He does not watch your videos and ONLY came here because he is STILL mad that he got destroyed in arguments, and then deleted and blocked by a slew of people.

    Hey john, you have been a huge inspiration for me to grow my own food. I am very thankful for all the videos you post FOR FREE! not many people have the integrity to just post all this information for free. So thank you! anyhow i have a question about the kale in this video. I am growing Lacinato kale here in Tampa, FL and its about half the size as the kale in this video.the kale is doing well but wont get any bigger than about 6" for each leaf. any tips? could it be the compost or the seeds?

  • corporatejungles 1 year ago

    Hey john, do you have any good recipies to those veggies you grow? Instead of just juicing everything? Breads, soups, etc. You need to do a show on how to cook those things.

  • corporatejungles 1 year ago

    I'm determined to watch all your videos by spring.

  • 57924hv 1 year ago

    that is awesome that you went to Leslie Doyle's place. I have her little guide, and it is a nice quick reference for many things. I particularly like her calendar of what I can plant in Vegas and when.

  • Nameless958 1 year ago

    I have a question. I am starting up a hydroponic systems and did some researching as to how to start the seeds. I came across a few tutorials that mentioned when you plant seeds, you should plant multiple seeds together (plant 2 – 4 fruiting plant seeds together and 6 – 8 herb plant seeds together) while a few other said others wise. Should I be planting multiple seeds in one hole at a time or should I only be trying to grow one at a time?

  • FiveHeartsTV 1 year ago

    Awesome! I'm in Vegas too – I'll have to swing by to check out the test garden and pick up some of that soil.
