Mammoth Tree Project for Leipzig Saxony Germany Europe and Africa

Greening Deserts started a mammoth project or campaign for our lovely hometown Leipzig in Saxony, Germany. It’s called 1000 Mammoth Trees for Leipzig. Of course we will plant much more, but we want to show that it is possible to plant 1000 trees in a day or during a week very easily. It’s much love, time and work around. Because some tree species like the giant Sequoia and Taxodium tree need a special cold treatment – we and nature have done the last weeks and months. Now we are ready to go and to grow it. The biggest Taxodium tree stands in Mexico. In 2005, its trunk had a circumference of 42 m, equating to a diameter of 14 m.

Taxodium trees in the area of Leipzig have a long history and goes back millions of years. It was one of the most widespreaded trees in the marshlands of Leipzig region. This mammoth-like tree and wood was highly sought after and expensive, that’s why this tree was felled massively. In Germany this tree is very rare and endangered. Greening Deserts projects will establish this tree again and plant millions of them in whole Europe. We want to establish this ancient tree again in the floodplain forests and lakeland region around Leipzig, but also in marshlands in Lithuania. You can help to plant them out this year. Follow or like the page to get news and updates about this campaign. Everybody is welcome to support us on the mission for real and sustainable conservation and environmental protection.

For drylands or wastelands we have also mammoth trees like the Taxodium mucronatum of Mexico and Adansonia trees of Africa. After years of plant research and studying the plant databases of Africa we found countless (also forgotten) plants are good to recultivate in grasslands, savannahs or even in deserts. Special desert plants like some ultraresistent bamboo sorts will help with soil loosening and subsoiling. Together with awesome plant mixes we can produce topsoil everywhere fast and efficient. That’s why we want to start also a greening- and research camp in the open-pit desert in the surface mining or post-mining landscape around Leipzig in Saxony, Germany. Of course these greening camps can be started in African and European countries with deserts, drylands or wetlands like in France or Spain.

Reduce global warming, negative human-made climate changes and plant more diverse parks, woods and forests – for better air quality and save CO2. Cool down urban areas with Urban Greening projects and establish more city forests. Support Greening Deserts to regreen and to recultivate native plants, especially endangered and forgotten species – wildlife and even extincted lifeforms maybe will come back if we all create more natural spaces and establish more wildlife sanctuaries.

Never underestimate the energies and forces of nature. Over time, nature takes everything back or balancing the environment worldwide. What we do to nature we do ourselves. Those who are committed to nature, the environment and a better climate, are committed to their own lives – even if it is not easy in this wasteful, consumer-crazy and destructive society. Just think of all the toxins and pollutants in the environment and the enormous destruction of nature, which was and is caused by the automotive, coal and heavy industry but also by the consumers. Everyone is a part responsible and should think more about – and then act especially! Less (plastic packaging, energy and food waste) is more.. money and a clean environment for all – by the way, clean air is a human right.

Thanks California and Canada for the mammoth tree inspiration, in memories to the wonderful redwoods.

Unique Selling Points and Innovations of Greening Deserts Projects

The second Greening Deserts master plan for desert areas such as open-pit deserts is ready and of course in continuous development.

The business plan, concept and study on sustainable greening methods, greenhouse management, forestry, agriculture and cultural economy for  opencast mine and post-mining landscapes can also be adapted as needed or revised for any situation.

In the following a few special Unique Selling Propositions (USPs) and innovative ideas are briefly summarized.

  • Growing, cultivation and care of rare endangered species, especially plants of the Red List – with extra greenhouses and grounds (botanical garden, park, forest) can be established
  • Biomass Research, production and recycling, processing or recycling of urban bio-waste for energy and soil production in opencast mine or post-mining areas (Biowaste Management)
  • Development and testing of greenhouse types and equipment in extreme landscapes like deserts, offering professional services, product and quality testing in relation to the industries or manufacturers
  • Greenhouse Management, Biosphere and Habitat Research
  • Product reviews, product testing and (re)presentation for manufacturers

Greening Deserts Projects Want to Plant over 100 Billion Trees Worldwide

One goal of Greening Deserts projects is to plant over 100 billion trees worldwide, especially in Europe and Africa during the next years. Together with the nations and awesome projects like the Great Green Wall, Great Green Wall North Africa, The Green Belt Movement and the Trillion Trees Campaign we can reach the goal fast and efficient.
Alone the Sahara is an area of 9,500,000 square kilometres, this is equal 950,000,000 ha (950 million hectares). If we plant trees just on 10% of this area we could convert 95 million hectares dry and barren wasteland into fertile landscapes. We want to establish greening camps and connect schools, universities and other institutions to the Greening Deserts projects and partner programs. A broad education and culture is very important for the projects. With active participation and real support of the concerned regions and financial help of all nations and goverments we can start with first preperations still this year and in 2018 on site – and see first results still that year. With our worldwide greening and forestation (afforestation and reforestation) projects we can reduce global warming significantly. To cool down cities and urban areas (Global Cooling), more parks and green roofs (rooftop greening) are required.

Socioeconomic Aspects and Factors of Greening and Desert Research in Surface Mining Deserts

Historical and cultural information on the past of the landscape and its use, also before the industrial mining period, are offered in the research camp as well as on corresponding pages on the Internet. Products such as books, pictures, photographs, films, works of art and antiques can be offered in a separate shop. Many socioeconomic factors and, above all, commercial aspects are in the area of ​​health care, recreation, sports and tourism. There are many commercial and economic effects in terms of income sources, employment and multipliers.

Other aspects:

  • Annual analysis and adaptation of the target groups, needs and interests of the visitors and / or customers with regard to the new mountain landscape landscapes (BFL) or lake landscapes
  • Direct and indirect employment and income effects, sales and profits through the sustainable management of opencast mining and mining landscapes
  • Marketing, merchandising and promotion on all possible channels, networks and platforms in German and English
  • Sustainable and forward-looking planning for the consumer and tourism sector
  • Bringing to the landscape dynamics and development in all its facets, showing the natural development processes of the landscape and vegetation
  • Use of local conditions and natural developments for unique natural experiences and experiences in the daytime landscape
  • Improvement of the image of the former day building landscape, elucidation of current, completed and future transformation or transformation processes
  • Arrangement of inexpensive tours and courses (for example, adventure walks, boat trips, bike tours) to the various natural themes, especially on the subject of nature conservation and natural forces

Financing can be provided through various sources of finance, such as crowding, capital, capital, investment capital, credit, venture capital (venture capital), private and public funding. The best is a good mix of uncomplicated and different financing, especially if there is enough evidence of efficiency and feasibility. Similar and successful concepts, feasibility studies and market analyzes in the relevant areas can make financing much easier. Profitable, long-term or future-oriented business ideas and concepts are often financed quickly. Unique features and strong references promote successful funding for new start-ups, start-ups, projects or existing companies.

There are many other social and economic (sociocultural) aspects or topics on greening and desert exploration in opencast mining deserts. These are extensively analyzed and processed with the Greening Deserts research projects. Read more on the official pages and in the masterplan: “Concept and Study on Sustainable Greening Methods, Greenhouse Management, Forestry, Agriculture and Culture Industry for Surface Mining and Post-Mining Landscapes“.

 

Welcome to Greening Deserts Greenhouse and Desert Research Camp!

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.

Visit the official pages for more information. Support also other sustainable projects like Desert Rice Cultivation and Desert Bamboo Project.

Maybe you want to join the team, be a future partner, sponsor or investor? Constructive advises, recommendations or suggestions are always welcome!

Climate Conference Cop21 Paris – Cop22 Marrakesh

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.

More details:
Greening Deserts is a sustainable project to green or cultivate dry areas, especially with special desert plants like Desert Bamboo. The project was developed over many years, the founder and initiator Oliver Caplikas started the first official pages in early summer 2016.

The project starts primarily near coasts with building greening camps, a kind of farm with greenhouses and containers, tents or huts. Using clean technologies like irrigation with natural water sources and renewable energy supply.

Greening Desert Camps could cultivate also food, herbs and medicinal plants are or were typical for each country or region the project starts, especially ancient plants were important in old times but today’s society has forgotten. The best plants for topsoil production can support to produce fast topsoil layers and spend shadows for other plants around.

Another main future goals are to build a water network for dry areas, to reclaim good land, save the environment by making it greener, improve the oxygen levels on earth and reduce the hunger crisis spread across various countries in the world. With your help we can restrict desertification and promote forestation. Please support our crowdfunding campaigns like on Kickstarter and/or Startnext!

With real (financial) support we could start everywhere it’s possible to get topsoil, especially in dry countries like Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Spain,..

Of course we will promote this event in our home country and cities like Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, etc.

Thank you! Wish you all a great time!

German:

Greening Deserts ist ein nachhaltiges Projekt um trockene Gebiete zu begrünen, vor allem mit speziellen Wüstenpflanzen wie Desert Bamboo.

Die besten Pflanzen für die Erdproduktion können schnell gute Erdschichten erzeugen und spenden Schatten für andere Pflanzen rundherum.

Das Projekt beginnt in erster Linie in der Nähe von Küsten mit Greening Camps, eine Art Farmen mit Gewächshäusern und Containern, Zelten oder Hütten.

Nutzung von sauberen Technologien wie die Bewässerung mit natürlichen Wasserquellen und erneuerbare Energieversorgung.

Weitere Hauptziele für die Zukunft sind, ein Wassernetz auszubauen, für trockene Gegenden, gutes Land zurückzugewinnen, die Umwelt durch Begrünung zu retten, den Sauerstoffgehalt auf der Erde zu verbessern und die Verbreitung der Hungerkrise in verschiedenen Ländern zu reduzieren. Mit Eurer Hilfe können wir Desertifikation einschränken und Aufforstung fördern. Unterstütze unser Projekt auf den Crowdfunding Platformen Kickstater und Startnext.

French:

Greening Deserts est un projet durable pour cultiver les zones sèches et les render vertes, en particulier avec des plantes spéciales désertiques comme Desert Bamboo.

Le projet commence principalement près des côtes avec la construction des camps d’écologisation, une sorte de ferme avec des serres et des conteneurs, des tentes ou des huttes. En utilisant des technologies propres comme l’irrigation avec des sources d’eau naturelles et l’alimentation en énergie renouvelable.

Les camps Greening Deserts pourraient aussi cultiver la nourriture, les herbes et les plantes médicinales sont ou ont été typique pour chaque pays ou région, surtout les plantes anciennes qui étaient importantes dans les temps anciens mais la société d’aujourd’hui a oublié. Les meilleures plantes pour la production de la couche arable peuvent soutenir de produire des couches de couche arable rapidement et passer des ombres pour d’autres plantes autour.

D’autres principaux objectifs futurs sont de construire un réseau d’eau pour les zones sèches, de réclamer une bonne terre, sauver l’environnement en le rendant plus vert, améliorer les niveaux d’oxygène de la terre et de réduire
la propagation de crise de faim dans différents pays du monde. Avec votre aide, nous pouvons limiter la désertification et promouvoir le reboisement.

Merci bien.

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
