It’s spring time for the Jordan Valley Permaculture Project (aka "Greening the Desert – the Sequel"), the lowest place on earth (400 metres below sea level) and one of the hottest and driest, and our trees and gardens are full of produce. During the internship that was held at the project in November 2012 the students worked on installing a new irrigation system that has obviously made a big difference!
The other thing that the interns worked on was the garden — now it’s lush and producing all kinds of vegetables.
The chickens are also loving the new house built by the interns, and the production of eggs has increased since their move!
The pictures herein show some of the trees, including pomegranates, apples, and olives. Some of the produce collected from the garden includes tomato, chili, okra, corn, lettuce and kale.
