Geoff Lawton and Zaytuna Farm

Geoff Lawton is one of the leading lights of the permaculture movement. His video “Greening The Desert” is an astounding documentary about the power of permaculture to transform an utterly arid and apparently dead landscape into a vibrant, life-sustaining food forest in just a few years, using simple technology.

Geoff runs a place in Australia called Zaytuna Farm, which is home to the Permaculture Research Institute. I would dearly love to visit it one day. For now I’ll have to content myself with watching this video on YouTube. This is Part 2, by the way. Part 1 can be found here.
