L’agriculture durable et le reboisement pour les zones sèches avec des projets de Greening Deserts
Leur objectif était toujours de rendre les zones sèches verte avec l’aide de cultivation durable. Ils ont hâte de rendre ce monde plus vert pour les générations futures. Avec l’initiative pionnière de Greening Deserts, l’organisation envisage de faire un bon usage de l’agriculture durable et les énergies renouvelables pour le bien de cultivation des zones pauvres. Considérant que les plantes du désert spéciales comme Desert Bamboo qui sont capables de produire des couches de terre végétale rapide et peut également offrir des ombres à d’autres plantes autour, ce projet vise essentiellement à cultiver les bosquets et les forêts, mais aussi la nourriture, les herbes et les plantes médicinales de chaque région.
Avec l’utilisation de systèmes d’eau de mer et de partage filtrés sur- et sous-sol, ce projet peut effectivement être un énorme succès. Avec l’accent principal sur l’utilisation des technologies propres, ils prévoient d’utiliser des conduites d’eau de bambou dans le but d’atteindre les zones sèches ou les régions éloignées dans le futur. Alors que le scénario mondialisé a pris tout l’univers sur un parcours d’une verdure perdue, cette organisation vise à rendre la planète plus verte du nouveau. Ils sont prêts à commencer partout où il y a une forte potentialité de produire la couche arable. Ils ont choisi des pays secs comme l’Egypte, la Libye, l’Algérie, la Tunisie, l’Afrique, le Maroc, l’Espagne, le Liban, la Syrie, l’Arabie Saoudite, Qatar, Émirats arabes unis, l’Iran, le Pakistan, l’Inde, la Chine, et beaucoup d’autres.

We will publish the most of them in future. Stay tuned for more interesting news and updates!

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.

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
You can start Desert Greening with planting bamboo and other special
desert plants to produce topsoil and shadows for other plants around.
A new press release and good news for Greening Deserts projects, feel free to share. Thanks!
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.
