Paul and Owen have just released a new podcast - Greening the Sahara Desert

Here's the blurb...

"Paul Wheaton talks to Owen Hablutzel about greening the Sahara Desert. 90% of the challenge with permaculture projects is the social and political dynamics. Owen talks about keeping humans and the ecosystem from being worked with separately. Organic matter does last in the Sahara, because there’s 2 inches of rain on average per year. Thus any form of hugelkultur does help. Paul talks about using biochar in the tropics. Paul talks about the book, the Poisonwood Bible. They talk about a holistic management perspective. Paul and Owen describe the Saharan landscape. Paul talks about the Sahara’s potential to return to lush savannah and jungle. Owen talks about working with local social dynamics as they restore the landscape. Owen shares about the local people and their nomadic transhuman lifestyle. They talk about refugee camps, and wells and gardens there. Owen talks about the utilization of holistic management there. Owen plans to do some experimental projects with keyline there. Owen mentions the movie, The Man Who Stopped the Desert. They talk about salinity and rocks. Owen talks about being very adaptive, and listening to the people there. Paul suggests a wicking technique that might help desalinate the soil. Paul gets into zai techniques."

What I would give to go to a Keyline course!! We need that info so badly here in the Ozarks. Steep hills, lots of runoff and not enough rain. But, unfortunately, Oregon is too far to go for a course.....plane trip, not great for the environment. Nobody to mind the farm while I am away. I shall continue to flounder on my own and read everything available.

I ran the app and it presented ten posts. I reviewed the posts and picked "the best". I then verified that that person was, indeed, signed up for the daily-ish email. So .... the winner is:


Brent Rogers




Congratulations Brent! I sent your name and email address to Owne and Neil. They should be making arrangments for you to get to the class.
