Hey there, fellow drylanders and those interested in dryland permaculture!
Abundant Desert is dedicated to the experimentation, observation and sharing of dryland permaculture practices. The goal is to capture the “best of the best” methodologies that work in hot drylands – both here in Phoenix, Arizona and around the world. And the truth is we’ll only know what the “best” is by creating our own experiments, documenting our progress and sharing our knowledge.
So if you’re interested in greening the desert, and doing so in a way that saves water, lowers your electricity bills, cleans the air, water and soil, builds community and is FUN – well, you’ve come to the right place. Relax, and enjoy the many foibles and follies as we create an Abundant Desert.
And now here's a silly video of Ryan Wood, Phoenix Program Coordinator of Watershed Management Group, using a laser level in my yard.
