Today we want to write about a special Greening Deserts project we started for opencast mining landscapes. Since years we think about greening camps and professional greenhouses for dry and barren landscapes like in opencast mines. We started to work on or planning an extra research camp at the opencast mine and new lakeland nearby Leipzig, Markkleeberg and Zwenkau. We informed all responsible institutions, regional, national and Europe-wide – so far and good we could with our projects.
Opportunities, innovations and positive developments of Greening Deserts projects are proved and documented. It is very important and urgent that the projects get all help or support so fast as possible to reduce negative Climate Change, Desertification and Global Warming by professional greening and forestation. The projects are not just for climate protection, they are also good for educational, cultural, social and scientific purposes. With the right financial support we can finaly build up the company or project structure, build a team and the first greening camp. Calling now again for international help.
Waiting and waiting for real active support (especially financial) over a year now!
Hope the times will change and people wake up finaly, especially the responsibles.
Welcome to the official pages for Greening Deserts projects in arid or dry, hot or cold regions. We offer professional greening services and solutions for coastal, subtropical, cold and semi-arid areas nearby water sources like lakes, rivers, seas or oceans!
This example video shows what today is possible with professional greenhouses and greening or gardening techniques like Hydroponics. We always prefer Permaculture, also without extra irrigation, but this depends on the plants and environment conditions.
Greening Deserts is a cultural, educational, economic, social, scientific and sustainable agriculture project using classical greening or gardening methods but also new and alternative techniques.
Greening of deserts, dry areas or barren lands with sustainable irrigation and renewable energy. Using filtered ocean or sea water, sharing systems overground and underground. Special desert plants can produce fast topsoil and create partwise shadows for plants around. With the right (financial) support we can start everywhere topsoil is needed. Together with the people of each region we also can create parks, woods and forests, especially in dry countries like Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Spain, Lebanon, Syria, Saudia Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Iran, Pakistan, India, China, Australia, etc. At the moment we concentrate on North Africa.
To accelerate the process professional greenhouses will be installed and newest sustainable cultivation techniques like aquaponics or hydroponics will be used. The project starts primarily near coasts with building Greening Camps and Desert Research Camps, a kind of farm with greenhouses and containers, tents or huts.
Benefits of clean technologies like irrigation with natural water sources (seas and oceans) and renewable energy supply with solar and water energy. The sea water will be pumped into over- and underground reservoirs at the camp. After that we can produce different kind of water, mineralised drink water, use, service or process water.
To produce topsoil we use best of soil producer plants, growing fast and producing a high amount of biomass. These special plants can also be used as organic fertilizer. More topsoil can be produced with recycling biowaste from cities or urban areas, a kind of biomass management together with the region.
We want to 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.
Greening Deserts projects are also good for refugee camps. Refugees can be integrated into the greening process, building greenhouses for food, medicine and forestation of parks and woods. They could create their own healthy environment and supply. We wrote detailed articles about this theme.
Maybe you want to join the team, be a future partner, sponsor or investor? Constructive advises, recommendations or suggestions are always welcome!
Greening Deserts projects are concentrated on dry areas or regions at lakes, seas, rivers and oceans. That’s why we founded the subproject Greening Coasts.
Another good news, we got some concrete offers (land and basic resources) from Egypt and Libya. But of course we still need financial support for the first camps (equipment and other basic requirements) until we earn the first money of events, harvests, etc. Help us to start and to realise the first camps in the next years.
Go green, it’s never enough to do something good. There can’t be enough greening projects!
Shocking news, facts and scandals about the Climate Conference in Morocco.
“The organization of COP22 will cost some €100 million.”
Where all the money is gone or for what exactly was it spent on?
We wanted to visit the UN Climate Conference of the Parties (COP22) in Marrakesh, Morocco. Seems we are not welcome, we got no invitation. But ok, we have enough to do, no money and also no time for endless talks like in Paris which changed nothing or too little. Since years we call for help and real support, also financially. Hope they start finally to do something for the nature, for the poor people and for the regions really need change or help – so how they promised the last years. With all the money they waste for such conferences or campaigns they could help all that poor people and regions. And what is with animal and human rights and biggest climate problems like air pollution caused by meat and coal production? Questions over questions
Of course we are for the good people, organisations and developments at and around the conference, especially for the alternative camps like Alter Cop22 Forum de la Terre.
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!
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
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.
