This is a one month internship at the Dead Sea (or Jordan) Valley Permaculture Project (aka ‘Greening the Desert – the Sequel’) site. This small project is located in the village of Jawasari on less than 1 acre of ground.
Immerse yourself in a once in a lifetime experience.
Some of the subjects that we will cover will be:
– Solar Dehydrator
– Natural Building
– Soil Biology
– Compost & Compost Tea
– Aid Projects
– Water Harvesting
– Food Forests
– Small scale crop/kitchen gardens and Nursery
– Small Animal Systems
– Design Exercises
Students will be engaged in the development of the land as a demonstration site and education centre. It has established food forests that will be pruned, chopped and dropped and mulched for early winter maintenance.
An alternative building on site will be maintained and extended in mud brick and straw bale.
Small animal systems and natural fertility systems with compost, compost tea and soil pro-biotic systems using animal products, natural fermentation and anaerobic natural fertilizer will be developed.
There will be desert vegetable gardens, a nursery and shade house.
There will be lessons in creating minimum-fuel rocket stove heaters and cookers, rocket stove heaters for hot water and rocket stove kitchen cookers plus food solar dryers created during the project plus much more.
This is an opportunity to experience a Permaculture Master Plan project in action during the establishment phase.
