Compost Experiment

We got together with our friend Ragheda to help her start moving her large and very beautiful garden to be fully organic. She is also working to incorporate organic gardening into a program she runs for mentally handicapped adults.

This is an example of a compost pit.

Oh yeah, she also has gazelle on her property.

Some nice covered vegetable gardens.

Just to add some contrast, you can see Baga'a from the house. I have been told it is the largest refugee camp in the world, home to 250,000 Palestinians. The extreme density of housing characterizes the camps in Jordan.


  1. I've recently decided that I'm going to bury all the organic material my aunts produce when they cook amazing food. i dig holes and bury it where I will hopefully plant something in the future. inshallah.

  2. Excellent! If you are in Jordan and you would like to purchase compost you can contact our company as well.
