The one month internship will be spent in the Greening the Desert Sequel Site located in the Dead Sea Valley, Jordan. It is one of the worlds most famous Permaculture sites, established and managed by Geoff and Nadia Lawton. This site is located in an arid-low-income settlement. The project serves as an education and demonstration site for what can be achieved locally in such environments. The Dead Sea Valley is 31° North of the equator and 400m below sea level. Considering that with every 100m we go down below sea level it mimics going 1° closer to the equator, which means this area is considered to be subtropical in terms of temperature, but drylands in terms of precipitation.

Since the project is in continuous development, during the internship the interns will be involved in redesigning some of the elements, re-establishing gardens, nursery systems, food forestry and utilities on the site and off the site extending the work into the community including reed beds and composting systems. All designed elements will be suitable for the hot drylands.
