Tour Description

If you are interested in a nature- based lifestyle then you will want to visit the first permaculture demonstration site in Jordan. Located in the Dead Sea Valley of Jordan the project is demonstrating and educating people on permaculture design examples in an extremely degraded landscape. This demonstration site is fully established as a model project of sustainable arid land development, demonstrating that all the basic needs for a healthy, meaningful, and peaceful lifestyle can be affordable, understood, and achieved by local people. This project site features energy efficient, appropriate housing with natural cooling systems and a plant nursery attachment, solar electricity, solar hot water, biological wastewater treatment recycling, dry compost toilet, rainwater harvesting earthworks, diverse inter-active plant animal and tree systems for local food production and processing. The demonstration house functions as a classroom, administration office for the project and the local community permaculture group. The project serves as a model that can be replicated throughout Jordan and other counties in the region.
