And thats where you start. Move gradually inland. Don't try to green the whole thing in 1 day. It's a gradual process. Good thread OP.
I came upon this today...these permaculture people, Australians, turned a piece of Jordan, a desert, with very little annual rainfall, into an oasis, they had figs growing there after 4 months...the oasis was self sufficient, could look after itself after 3 years...on very little annual rainfall extract from their website..... ....*******teaching communities around them how to begin to tackle at root the massive challenges we now face after decades of short-term profit-based thinking has all but ‘consumed’ our planet and dismantled the social constructs that the human race has always depended on for its survival. Through this work we see desertification stopped in its tracks, and reversed. We see this century’s dire water issues getting resolved. We see productive work for millions in bypassing the irrelevant efforts of our ‘leaders’, to instead build a new kind of culture – a culture based on cooperative effort and learning. It’s a culture where its members have regained a sense of their place in creation, where they become land-based stewards of remaining resources; creating a culture where we at last find ultimate satisfaction – promoting and building peace and low-carbon, relocalised, community-based prosperity..................................................
