Greening Deserts is a sustainable project to green and (re)cultivate dry areas with desert plants like Desert Bamboo. The project starts primarily near coasts with building greening camps, a kind of farm with greenhouses and containers, tents or huts. Each support is important, we all are a part of nature and responsible for the climate, the environment and the planet earth. Sustainability is about ecology, economy and equity. - Ralph Bicknese

What is this project all about?

Greening Deserts is a sustainable project for greening, irrigation and forestation of dry areas or regions. To accelerate the process professional greenhouses will be installed.

The project starts primarily near coasts with building greening camps, a kind of farm with greenhouses and containers, tents or huts.

The best plants for topsoil production can support to produce fast topsoil layers and spend shadows for other plants around.

Using clean technologies like irrigation with natural water sources (seas and oceans) and renewable energy supply with solar and water energy.

In short, Greening Deserts and connected projects want to produce topsoil, typical plants of the region, building materials and parks for a better environment.

There will come much more information, updates and videos to the project. Visit the official pages regularly to stay up to date.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

The project want to reach all people of all ages and will focus on education and development in the mentioned areas. The people of the region are addressed and we try to integrate them so far as possible into the project.
Further future goals are to build a water network for dry areas, reclaim good land, save the environment by making it greener, improve the oxygen levels on earth and reduce the hunger crisis spread across various countries in the world.

Why would you support this project?

With your help we can restrict desertification and promote forestation. Support us for a better future with a greener, cleaner and healthy environment. This would not only support countries in Africa where the project will be mainly located. The project helps also all others, especially with good drink water and clean air which will be generated.

A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people. - Franklin D. Roosevelt
What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another. - Gandhi
In nature everything is connected, interwoven, subject to natural law. We cannot separate ourselves from that, no matter how hard we try. - Jeffrey R. Anderson

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

For a small Greening Desert Camp with two to three greenhouses a lot of resources and support is required. The project development costs including many items like premises (lease), equipment, material, promotion, site personnel, necessary fees, services, services and much more. Since it is difficult to get so much money with one crowdfunding campaign, partial financing will be here first aim - for the first preparations and the first months of the startup!

There are many small costs, especially for the development of good teams in place financial resources are needed.

Every small donation counts and helps further advance the project. Of course, advices, recommendations and any other type of support is welcome.
