After touring the first ancient irrigation system, Misfat Al Abriyeen, Geoff explored Birkat Al Mouz, where the water system is channeled over a wall to maintain a high water level for as long as possible before it is distributed to gardens.

About Permaculture:

Permaculture integrates land, resources, people, and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies – imitating the no-waste, closed-loop systems seen in diverse natural systems. Permaculture applies holistic solutions that are applicable in rural and urban contexts and at any scale. It is a multidisciplinary toolbox including agriculture, water harvesting and hydrology, energy, natural building, forestry, waste management, animal systems, aquaculture, appropriate technology, economics, and community development.
