Desert or Paradise

Desert or Paradise
Through years of consultation with other countries, renowned permaculturist Sepp Holzer has developed a core philosophy for reconnecting mankind with nature even in arid or otherwise �lost-cause� regions. He details a process he calls �Grundierung,� a term from painting meaning �base coat,� which goes into great detail as to the importance of water, and Desert or Paradise offers his concept and guide to construction of large water reservoirs in arid, rainfall-dependent regions with examples from Greece, Turkey, Spain, and Portugal. Holzer describes the ecological and economic benefits of these changes, as well as the use of a variety of plant and animal species for further integration and regeneration of the surrounding areas, including reasons for reforestation and the cause and use of forest fires.
