More details:
Greening Deserts is a sustainable project to green or cultivate dry areas, especially with special desert plants like Desert Bamboo. The project was developed over many years, the founder and initiator Oliver Caplikas started the first official pages in early summer 2016.

The project starts primarily near coasts with building greening camps, a kind of farm with greenhouses and containers, tents or huts. Using clean technologies like irrigation with natural water sources and renewable energy supply.

Greening Desert Camps could cultivate also food, herbs and medicinal plants are or were typical for each country or region the project starts, especially ancient plants were important in old times but today’s society has forgotten. The best plants for topsoil production can support to produce fast topsoil layers and spend shadows for other plants around.

Another main future goals are to build a water network for dry areas, to 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. With your help we can restrict desertification and promote forestation. Please support our crowdfunding campaigns like on Kickstarter and/or Startnext!

With real (financial) support we could start everywhere it’s possible to get topsoil, especially in dry countries like Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Spain,..

Of course we will promote this event in our home country and cities like Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, etc.

Thank you! Wish you all a great time!

German:

Greening Deserts ist ein nachhaltiges Projekt um trockene Gebiete zu begrünen, vor allem mit speziellen Wüstenpflanzen wie Desert Bamboo.

Die besten Pflanzen für die Erdproduktion können schnell gute Erdschichten erzeugen und spenden Schatten für andere Pflanzen rundherum.

Das Projekt beginnt in erster Linie in der Nähe von Küsten mit Greening Camps, eine Art Farmen mit Gewächshäusern und Containern, Zelten oder Hütten.

Nutzung von sauberen Technologien wie die Bewässerung mit natürlichen Wasserquellen und erneuerbare Energieversorgung.

Weitere Hauptziele für die Zukunft sind, ein Wassernetz auszubauen, für trockene Gegenden, gutes Land zurückzugewinnen, die Umwelt durch Begrünung zu retten, den Sauerstoffgehalt auf der Erde zu verbessern und die Verbreitung der Hungerkrise in verschiedenen Ländern zu reduzieren. Mit Eurer Hilfe können wir Desertifikation einschränken und Aufforstung fördern. Unterstütze unser Projekt auf den Crowdfunding Platformen Kickstater und Startnext.

French:

Greening Deserts est un projet durable pour cultiver les zones sèches et les render vertes, en particulier avec des plantes spéciales désertiques comme Desert Bamboo.

Le projet commence principalement près des côtes avec la construction des camps d’écologisation, une sorte de ferme avec des serres et des conteneurs, des tentes ou des huttes. En utilisant des technologies propres comme l’irrigation avec des sources d’eau naturelles et l’alimentation en énergie renouvelable.

Les camps Greening Deserts pourraient aussi cultiver la nourriture, les herbes et les plantes médicinales sont ou ont été typique pour chaque pays ou région, surtout les plantes anciennes qui étaient importantes dans les temps anciens mais la société d’aujourd’hui a oublié. Les meilleures plantes pour la production de la couche arable peuvent soutenir de produire des couches de couche arable rapidement et passer des ombres pour d’autres plantes autour.

D’autres principaux objectifs futurs sont de construire un réseau d’eau pour les zones sèches, de réclamer une bonne terre, sauver l’environnement en le rendant plus vert, améliorer les niveaux d’oxygène de la terre et de réduire
la propagation de crise de faim dans différents pays du monde. Avec votre aide, nous pouvons limiter la désertification et promouvoir le reboisement.

Merci bien.

Desert Grooves Africa Lounge Music Mix

Enjoy a special Greening Deserts music mix for Desert Grooves Africa!

Yes, Greening Deserts projects will integrate music, art and culture of each region but also from around the world. Greening Desert Camps have enough place for creative or experimental workrooms, studios or other kind of buildings, rooms or places. We can build a lot with bamboo that’s why each camp will have a Lounge.

Everybody is welcome to join us at our first camp!

Desert Plants Research of New and Old Species

We want to (re)cultivate also food, herbs and medicinal plants are or were typical for each country or region we start, especially ancient plants were important in old times but today’s society has forgotten. That’s why Greening Deserts want to research or rediscover old plants and find new plants.

“The beginnings of civilization and the origins of the healing arts can be traced back to Africa and the divine Inmhotep, healer to the Pharaohs. The ancient African healers had an elaborate materia medica, most of the over 5,000 plant species have been used for food and medicine for centuries.” http://bit.ly/2arNKHJ, http://bit.ly/2aKpG0U, http://bit.ly/2ax49FK

Greening Deserts Camel Support Video

Show some love for Greening Deserts Camel

A camel in distress isn’t a shy creature. It doesn’t hang around in bars, nursing a solitary drink. It doesn’t phone up old friends and sob at them. It doesn’t mope, or write long soulful poems about Life and how dreadful it is when seen from a bedsitter. It doesn’t know what angst is.- Terry Pratchett
Camels can go many weeks without drinking anything at all. The notion that they cache water in their humps is pure myth—their humps are made of fat, and water is stored in their body tissues. While other mammals draw water from bloodstreams when faced with dehydration, leading to death by volume shock, camels tap the water in their tissues, keeping their blood volume stable. Though this reduces the camel’s bulk, they can lose up to a third of their body weight with no ill effects, which they can replace astonishingly quickly, as they are able to drink up to forty gallons in a single watering. – Michael Benanav

Desert Plants for Greening Deserts
