In a few short months, permaculture goodness transformed a lifeless, salted desert schoolyard into a profusion of plants - which in turn created a school within a school. The children are learning how to take control back over their own futures, their health, and how to restore their abused environment and exhausted landscape. They are bringing this knowledge home to their parents.
The Jordanian Department of Education is noticing too! This garden won a national competition for environmental projects for schools - which means the whole, water stressed country is looking at the solutions found in this garden.
