Figs from a Salt Desert in less than Two Years

If you're curious about the practical applications of Permaculture or want to introduce it to other people, you can direct them to this short Flash movie "Greening the Desert" put out by Geoff Lawton and the good folks at the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia.

It's about a project in the desert of Jordan to reclaim an area of heavily salted farmland. Using Permaculture techniques they manage to grow figs and other crops while de-salting the land and replenishing the water table.
