Necessity creates great motivation to figure out the seemingly insolvable!  Great article, thanks for posting it.

This is what all desert countries should be doing, and this is the kind of stuff that overseas aid should go to.

A dear friend of mine visited Israel last fall and spent some time on a kibbutz (collective living area).  She marveled at their fruitfulness and the results they were getting, she couldn't stop talking about it!  They fed themselves and had more to share/sell.

Thank you :-) I am going to be working on a dinnerware set from that artwork in the next few weeks. Now all I need is a cabin to go with it, LOL!
