These first three videos have inspired our journey to recreate forests from dry and degraded land. We hope you enjoy them too.
Greening the Desert
This video of the Greening the Desert site near the Dead Sea Valley in Jordan is the reason we took our Permaculture Design Certificate in Jordan. Which, incidentally, was the first course taught by Geoff and Nadia Lawton at the Permaculture Research Institute of Jordan in 2009.

Willie Smits restores a rainforest
On a 2000 acres site in Borneo, Willie Smits has found a way to re-grow clearcut rainforest. Truely an inspiration.
Watch Willie Smits’ TED talk about restoring a rainforest.
Imagine an army of people transforming degraded environments into productive land. That’s exactly what happened at the Loess Plateau in China. In six parts, but well worth watching.
Watch the first part of the Loess Plateau transformation.
