Presentation Abstract
The 2013 Research Poster will provide a report on the installation of a socio-economic garden and amphitheater at the entry to Tall Hisban Archaeological Park, Jordan. The research and synthesis of xeriscapic and socio-economic plants, that have sustained the Jordanian people for centuries, has been completed. An interpretive garden has been constructed and signed, for the purpose of educating visitors who come to Tall Hisban Archaeological Park. The focus is on their heritage and the heritage of the site through an educational exhibit on sustainable plants and water harvesting methods. The garden also becomes an orientation amphitheater for all visitors who first enter the park. A further study of xeriscapic ornamental plants for potential introduction into the U.S. was also included in our 2013 work.
