Greening the desert

Don't forget permaculture on BBC 2 tomorrow night at 8pm!!!

If you're wondering what all the fuss is about, here is one of my favourite YouTube videos. It shows how working with nature really does work even in the most extreme conditions.

You can find out more about Geoff Lawton and The Permaculture Research Institute of Australia at (the UK site is and the USA site:


  1. Interesting programme. It was good to see what a forest garden looks like in the flesh, so to speak.

  2. Hi Karin,

    I thought the BBC2 programme was really well put together and very interesting. For those of you that missed it, you'll be able to watch it on the BBC iPlayer (not sure how long they keep programmes there), or catch it tomorrow (Sunday the 22nd of Feb).
