I guess my point of posting it was, if this person in such a desolate location can do permaculture and say it's easy, the rest of us have no excuse to call it hard.

Thanks for sharing the video!! What a gorgeous place, and Abla is delightful. It is amazing to see such a dramatic transformation in such a short time.

(I like the cartoons too.)

That was my thought, as well. Seeing a transformation of dry/dead land into an oasis full of life is really inspiring. It makes one realize that every little thing you do to build the soil and retain water is one more step towards the end goal.
