Regenerative agriculture

On a 100-acre water shed that serves as our demonstration site, we are converting the desert into a regenerative agriculture. 

 

Achieving such a system will increase water resources & biodiversity, create soil, & provide a livelihood for those who manage the land.

The challenge

70 years of desertification from  policy changes, overgrazing, & woodcutting has brought a community of settled bedouin into extreme poverty.

 

As ecological degradation reaches its apex, more people face geographic & economic displacement.

The solution

Flood management & silvopasture can restore ecological function, & increase the fertility & productivity

of the land.

 

This approach honors the nomadic heritage & livelihood of the community, laying the foundation for a sustainable economy.

Our aspiration

After establishing a pattern of regenerative agriculture in Albaydha, we aim to enable large-scale agriecologies across the Hijaz.

 

This can alleviate water scarcity & unemployment, increase biodiversity, sequester carbon, & create new
rural economies.

Abdul Razaq al Aduani speaks about the desertification in Al Baydha he has witnessed in his lifetime. 

Passively harvesting water from flash floods enables revegetation of deforested flood plains

Teaching people in Albaydha how to build and manage the water & agroecology systems builds local knowledge base & skills.
