Today we want to write a bit about greening projects for refugees.
Why so many refugee camps have no or so less greenhouses, gardens and parks?
For some time we think about to help the poor with our greening or gardening projects, for countries (landscape greening) or cities (urban greening). Together it’s really easy to build up little greenhouses, community gardens and use permaculture or gardening techniques fit good with the regional conditions and environment, also without big irrigation. There are great greenhouse projects like Roots Up using water supply by air.
The refugee camps also could use cheap and portable (pop up) greenhouses, just for the case that camps will be closed and destroyed. How you can see we always thinking sustainable, economically and social. Greening Deserts camps are a good example for refugee camps – greening camps for refugees.
Please help and support our sustainable startup for a greener and better future. Check our project pages for more information.
If you can’t support the project financially, you can support by sharing and with constructive feedback.
Greening Deserts is a sustainable project for greening, irrigation and forestation. The project is not just for dry or poor countries, it’s for all areas need more green, parks, woods and a healthy and more natural environment. To accelerate the process professional greening camp and research camp with greenhouses will be installed. Using clean technologies like irrigation with natural water sources (rivers, lakes, seas or oceans) and renewable energy supply with solar and water energy.
The project is mainly to restore and reclaim land or topsoil in the first three years, build groves, parks and small woods. Parallel we doing scientific studies with own test greenhouse and test fields new plants, irrigation and cultivation techniques. We offer a wide range of services (greening, buidling, etc.), check our pages and community network for more details.
At the end we all have a lot of parks, usable land for gardening, agriculture or just living. There are great opportunities and possibilities for greening dry areas near coasts, rivers or lakes. Another point is to green dry cities with Rooftop Gardening. The project will do a kind of acupuncture and help the nature to restore and expand in the region where the greening spots are. It is an epochal and important future project for us and the next generations. The project team thinks in the long term.
Please help us to realise the project and support us also without money. Share and recommend the project so we maybe reach people who can really help or support actively. Thank you and have a great time!

The Crowdfunding Campaign on Kickstarter is live! http://kck.st/2bSEhnV
Now you can support the project financially. But of course any other kinds of support like advises, recommendations or suggestions are welcome! Invite and share it with your friends, it’s all in good cause.
Great news, we got requests from some countries like Egypt, Tunisia, India, Pakistan and China for the Greening Deserts projects. We hope to get some support (land, materials, etc.) from each nation where we will start, so we could realise the first camps very fast and effective over the next years. The first desert plants and bamboo parks or little woods could stand in up to five years. If we do not get support from the governments or communities mentioned above we can lease land or start in Spain where we have a lot of good contacts and friends. You have ideas in which areas or countries the project could fit, too? Write a PM or comment below.
Big thanks to the first supporters who spend some money! The first 50 backers who spend 25 or more will get an extra surprise for their package, just a hint it has something to do with backpacks.
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.

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

You can start Desert Greening with planting bamboo and other special
desert plants to produce topsoil and shadows for other plants around.
