For a second year we co-delivered with the Cal-Earth teaching staff a combined Superadobe Earth Building and Permaculture Design Certificate Course. At the close of our training we were pleased to host Geoff and Nadia Lawton of PRI-Australia who shared their work in desert environments with us while they were in the USA for a brief visit. This workshop was also opened to the general public seen here at the end of a really great day of learning.
Let’s continue this picture summary from the Beginning of the Training….

Below is a great 4 min. video on how this simple ‘Laundry to Landscape’ system works produced by Art Ludwig of Oasis Designs.
This short video of ours will explain how a hugelkultured bed with a swale works.
About Greening the Desert
Many of us were introduced to Geoff through the very popular 6-minute film Greening the Desert. It is the story of a reclamation project in one of the hottest and driest environments in the world — the Desert Jordan, just above the Dead Sea in the Middle East.
Geoff and Nadia have worked on many projects around the world including this garden at a girls school, also in Jordan.
You can follow Geoff and Nadia’s work by visiting the website of the Permaculture Research Institute-Australia.
Our Next Scheduled Cal-Earth Combined Training is Oct. 3-15, 2016
