Well, you would be hard pressed to find a tougher block of land — a 400m below sea level, West facing slope, in an extremely hot, arid climate, with extremely poor, shallow highly alkaline top ‘soil’, covered in rocks, with a limited water supply and in a mostly Palestinian refugee-populated village. When we first started working on the site local farmers thought it was just ridiculous to even try to produce any kind of result on such a rough site. They were not interested at all and could see no reason to stop using chemicals and burning crop residues and planting nothing but large fields of monoculture cash crops.

Compare surrounding terrain 
Note: If nothing is built on a section of land, it can be taken from the owner. Notice the  scattered ‘buildings’ which are built as ‘placemarkers’ to ensure ownership is retained. These sections have sat like this for years — as without Permaculture design, the land is impossibly unproductive.
