    and embrace humans as one of the dominant species in the ecosystem We recognize that efforts to conserve Jordan s flora are unlikely to succeed unless there are economic incentives for people to participate in the process The RBG therefore is striving to act as a giant demonstration site and provide training for the local community in areas such as sustainable water management eco building alternative energy managed grazing and environmentally compatible income generation We want every strategy used at the RBG to be replicable by the average Jordanian With these goals in mind the first major programme we started at the RBG was the Community Based Rangeland Rehabilitation CBRR programme It began in 2007 with five herding families and has now expanded to include 21 families who live nearby Originally some of the local herders vehemently opposed the establishment of the Garden But now they have become our advocates and protectors CBRR projects work to balance grazing and biodiversity tailoring grazing regimes to what can be sustained within the resources provided by a healthy habitat At the same time livestock owners receive intensive training in herd health and management allowing them to earn higher incomes and improve their quality of life This year the CBRR programme initiated a Dairy Production pilot project for making high quality jameed from sheep milk to create more sources of income for the community Income Generating Programme In April 2010 the RBG established a Community Income Generating Programme to teach new skills to people in the local community especially women In the future a number of micro projects should be introduced in the community related to sewing and crafts beekeeping mushrooms and medicinal and aromatic plants The RBG also arranged for the Tal Al Rumman girls school to be paired up with the Amman
