Preparing an international crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Doing an extra crowdfunding campaign on Startnext, because you can’t use Paypal on Kickstarter and to reach also people in Europe or Germany. Everyone should have a chance to support the project financially. More information coming soon, stay tuned! www.greeningdeserts.com
Each advise, recommendations and constructive feedback is welcome!
The first art cards and info flyers for Germany arrived. They will be shared in different cities. There will be much more information material and merchandise like shirts, posters, pins,.. especially for the crowdfunding campaigns. We have not much money, but we invest everything we have. We are pleased about your active support when hanging up posters and spreading flyers.
Big thanks to the people of Ancient Trance Festival in Taucha nearby Leipzig, who allowed to spread flyers over the weekend. Next year the project will be maybe active part of this wonderful festival.
Visit us also on Twitter and follow us if you are connected. If you want help and can’t spend money share our pages or posts. Invite your friends to the pages. Thank you!
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!
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

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
There are thousands of ‘desert plants’ growing in dry plains or hilly areas. We know the most of plants for fast and efficient greening of dry areas. But to produce really good topsoil you need some special plants in combination with desert bamboo. Each region and climate zone needs a special mix. This is our project and we can realise it fast with the right (financial) support. Of course we will keep on researching and developing new possibilities and techniques. With the experience of the first camps we will achieve even better results in future. One of our goals is to use the best of the best growing (greenhouse) techniques for upcoming space projects. Show some support for our projects for afforestation, clean food and renewable energy production. Share it for a better future and help us to stop global warming. @Desert Bamboo Project @Desert Rice Cultivation
You can start Desert Greening with planting bamboo and other special
desert plants to produce topsoil and shadows for other plants around.
Deserts are not really or always death if you take a closer look: http://bit.ly/1P85akN
Blooming and green deserts was not just a dream bei Sheikh Zayed.
You ever heard about the Great Green Walls on planet earth?
A group of farmers in Burkina Faso are battling climate change and re-greening the desert in Africa.
Support Desert Greening (topsoil production) and food cultivation projects, open your eyes.
If you can’t help with money, share it around! There are so many ways to help, don’t ignore such positive movements. @The Green Belt Movement
A single man planted alone a whole wood or forest. Since the 1970’s Jadav Payeng from India has been planting trees in order to save his island. Keep up the great job!
With special desert plants and irrigation systems it is possible to reach such results in less time.
There are great opportunities and possibilities for greening deserts with desert plants like desert bamboo.
Here is one good idea, start growing bamboo groves, parks and whole woods! Check more here: http://www.desert-bamboo.com
