photo credit @barefootsoulutionspermaculture The beginning of the Mandala design; implemented as a dry lands garden for hardy crops. Aloe vera, chili, lemon grass, fruit trees, papayas now reign this area. This area is watered weekly only and trees were planted with pipes so we can efficiently water them deep down. #barefootsoulutions #turkana #agroecology #permaculture #sustainablefarming #mandala #mandalagarden #design #landscape #landscapedesign #foodsecurity #community #kenya #drylandscape #desertfarming #greeningthedesert

Looking to green your desert garden? Bananas 🍌 are fast growing and love warm temps. The giant leaves eventually add an amazing pop of color where ever they are planted.

The first tree we will be planting in Epic Yard Farm 2.0, Black Sphinx Date Palm. There are so much to do still for us to be completely moved in, but the backyard here clearly is filled with wildlife and I am absolutely in love with the space already. I will be learning how to repair, use and add to the existing @hunterindustries irrigation system. Lots of new exciting adventures ahead and I am glad that you all can come along for the ride. 💕😃 Have a beautiful day everyone! #arizonagardening #datepalm #foodforest #epicyardfarm #eyf2 #permaculture #greeningthedesert #mediterraneangarden #desertoasis #ediblegarden #blacksphinxdate #phoenixdactylifera

🌲 🌲 🌲 This morning 6am with a crackle in my voice after a full day of digging, watering, planting, securing 7 of 9 15 gallon size trees in cold gusty winds of the desert well into the night. We had to use headlights to see and work together but I feel rejuvenated to have poured my love into the beginning of this landscaping project. Recorded are desert-equipped trees for our #greenbarrier #greenhedge #desertforest #canopy before shrubs, edibles and annuals go in this #plantingseason #planting #plantinghome #greendesert #greeningthedesert #highdesertlife #highdesertpermaculture

Der SEKEM Shop unterstützt die „Greening the Desert Kampagne 2019“! 63 Hektar Wüste für nachhaltige Landwirtschaft begrünen. Das soll gemeinsam mit Euch passieren. Um in der Wüste nachhaltig Landwirtschaft betreiben zu können müssen die knappen Ressourcen bewusst und schonend verwendet werden. Viele Menschen haben SEKEM bereits dabei unterstützt, ein nachhaltiges Bewässerungssystem zu kaufen und zu installieren - und wie Ihr in diesem Video sehen könnt, werden bereits Kompost aufgetragen und die ersten Pflanzen gesetzt. Ihr könnt auch mitmachen - unter pivot.sekem.com gibt es mehr Infos! #desertgreening #greeningthedesert #sustainablecrowdfunding #nachhaltigekampagnen

I am choosing Mesquite trees as one of my nitrogen fixing pioneer trees on the farm. I am sprouting Velvet, Honey and Screwbean seeds for future planting on the farm. One hope I have is that their deep tap roots will reach the shallow (30ft) water table, and maybe benefit surrounding trees with their hydraulic redistribution. #permaculture #greeningthedesert

Step 1 will be a soil test, but I already know I'm going to need a ton of compost! #greeningthedesert

Not-so-secretly, I've always wanted to start a farm. This is one of a folder full of different concepts for a quarter acre in the high desert. The black is solar, the green blocks are aquaponics modules, wind turbines are the dotted line on the west side, the rest you can guess. :p * * * #grow #pricklypear #pomegranate #jojoba #pinenuts #citrus #dates #figs #olives #teff #chickens #ayamcemani #zebu #cashmere #goats #aquaponics #catfish #vanilla #cacao #bananas #rainwatercatchment #greeningthedesert

Permaculture has many facets; but surely one of the most exciting is its approach to water. By working with intelligent landscape design, permaculture systems create sustainable food systems that harvest and retain rain and irrigation water. Implementation of the principles increases carbon in the soil and thus improves and enriches the soil and its water holding capacity. Choose to farm and live using permaculture methods and principles for a sustainable future #worldwaterday #permacultureworks #sustainablelifestyles #selfreliance #greeningthedesert #abundanceforall #gardenofdelights #supportorganicfarmers #nopoisonshere #permaculturefarmtours #route62

Von der Wüste zur biologisch bewirtschafteten Dattel- und Olivenplantage - das haben wir in Marokko vor. Noch stehen wir am Anfang des Projektes, doch in etwa sechs Jahren könnten auf unseren Flächen in Errachidia ähnlich stattliche Palmen stehen wie auf dem Foto, das die Riad Tafilalet Farm in der Nähe von Boudnib zeigt. #marokko #datteln #palmen #greeningthedesert #oase #diewüstelebt #bioanbau

What do people notice first about your garden? 😀💚 . I live in the city, so it is easy for me to plant things that are that are unusual for most of my neighbors. The cattails were planted in the runoff from my yard. I tried to make use of the water as much as possible, even though my yard, in this photo, was small. . . . #urbangarden #urbanpermaculture #permaculture #forestgardening #ediblelandscape #pdc #permakultur #garden   #landscapedesign #foodforest #raisedbed #orchard #hugelkultur #tinyhouse #environment #climatechange #geofflawton #greeningthedesert #greennewdeal #billmollison #loessplateau #permaculturedesign #permaculturechickens #permaculturedesigncertificate

Up on the rooftop listening to punk rock. Nobody believed us, this could be our one shot. I will deeply miss my rooftop workouts during sunset; looking at the neighbors milling about their property, watching Hayel’s kids next door, and just absolutely LIVING in this extremely special place. I left there with a completely broken but completely full heart, but I’ll be coming home with the happiest of hearts. #travel #adventure #middleeast #greeningthedesert #jordanvalley #passion #blessed #fitness #igfitness #punkrock #bodybuilding #permaculture

How much can you grow in a 5'x20' strip? 🌱🌳🍇 . Small spaces create big opportunities. You can plant fruit trees, bushes, insect habitats and all sorts of edible and attractive plants. Don't hesitate, just do it! 😀 . . . #permaculture #forestgardening #ediblelandscape #pdc #permakultur #garden   #landscapedesign #foodforest #raisedbed #orchard #hugelkultur #tinyhouse #environment #climatechange #geofflawton #greeningthedesert #greennewdeal #billmollison #loessplateau #permaculturedesign #permaculturechickens #permaculturedesigncertificate

Since my property is 4hrs away from where I currently live I haven't done anything to it yet, but I've been preparing! I plan to hit the ground running later this year. The initial steps will include fencing the property, installing solar powered well pumps and irrigation, begin working compost into the soil, planting fruit trees, cover crops, buiIding a metal barn etc. I can't wait! #greeningthedesert

Do you, or a friend, want to garden in a tough spot?😀💚 This book can teach you to grow food anywhere! It taught Geoff Lawton how to plant a food forest in the desert. It showed the Chinese people how to restore a hopelessly degraded region called the Loess Plateau. It gives me confidence that humans will live through, and eventually reverse, climate change. . Permaculture, A Designer's Manual teaches individuals and communities to grow better food, and live richer lives, in challenging places and times. Everything on this small, blue planet is connected. If we can absorb this book, humanity can continue to thrive for thousands of years. . . . #permaculture #forestgardening #ediblelandscape #pdc #permakultur #garden #landscapedesign #foodforest #raisedbed #orchard #hugelkultur #tinyhouse #environment #climatechange #geofflawton #greeningthedesert #greennewdeal #billmollison #loessplateau #permaculturedesign #permaculturechickens #permaculturedesigncertificate

We've been working on a variety of small projects. My husband and I put up homemade street signs to help the FedEx guy find our place. We ended up meeting up with the FedEx guy on the road. I collected cow manure on our property from free range (escaped) cows. I put manure on top of cardboard in two square pits. I poured our waste water on top. I covered one of the pits with wood chips and covered it with a sheet of plywood. A few days ago I planted seeds in three trays. We're watching Geoff Lawton's video about 18 day compost on his website. . #offgridlife #homestead #composting #manure #homesteadprojects #trenchcomposting #compostpit #compostingmanure #desertliving #greywater #rvwater #rvingoffgrid #offgridhomestead #dryland #permaculture #makingcompost #compost #ecosystem #greeningthedesert #💩 #💩💩💩 #composting 💩 #compostactivator #poop 💩 #pooppit
