from desert to oasis

Time for some good news. i've just been reading Pitchfork Design .. where Sam talks of a new project up near Swan Hill; and her inspiration is this amazing tale of greening the desert in Jordan.

This video is so worth watching, from desert to fruit trees and oasis: "You can solve the problems of the world in a garden," says Geoff Lawton the permaculture artist behind the project.

.. and read up on Sam's projects too, she's doing amazing work rebuilding the gardens in schools around Victoria. go Sam!
