Permaculture: Green Gold

"It's possible to rehabilitate large-scale damaged ecosystems with the use of permaculture design principles and techniques." Environmental film maker John D. Liu documents large-scale ecosystem restoration projects in China, Africa, South America and the Middle East, highlighting the enormous benefits to people and planet of undertaking these efforts globally. Geoff Lawton explains about permaculture and the projects he has develloped in Jordan.

A truly uplifting story how humanity can repair the damaged ecosystems worldwide by systematically applying permaculture design principles and techniques to restore these systems. Ecosystem repair will be the great story of the coming decades! A return of humanity respecting ecology and starting a cooperative bond again with nature.
