Greening Deserts Crowdfunding Rewards Seeds Mix

The second package with thousands of seeds arrived and we start now to prepare the crowdfunding rewards like the seed mixes for our backers. The packs will contain seeds of desert plants and steppe or savanna plants, in addition to that we will give extra plant seeds for moderate or oceanic climate.

Breckland thyme – Thymus cerpyllum

Desert bluebells – Phacelia campanularia

Woodland sage – Salvia nemorosa

Silver birch – Betula pendula

Purple Chinese houses – Collinsia heterophylla

Goldmoss stonecrop – Sedum acre

Carpet of snow – Alyssum maritimum

White stonecrop – Sedum album

Purple tansy – Phacelia Tanacetifolia

Solid bamboo – Dendrocalamus strictus

More awesome plant seeds are on the way and we will do a second seed mix. There are around fifty important plants we will use for topsoil production, general forestation, afforestation or reforestation and hundreds of plants we want to cultivate for food, medicine, buidling materials, etc.. We will publish the most of them in future. Stay tuned for more interesting news and updates!

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

Desert Plants Species and Types

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

Blooming and green deserts was not just a dream bei Sheikh Zayed.

Sheikh Zayed, for whom plants were ‘like children’, was determined to see his land bloom.
