About

Greening Deserts or dry areas with desert plants, permaculture, sustainable irrigation and renewable energy.

Greening Deserts is a sustainable project for greening, irrigation and forestation of dry areas (coastal, subtropical, semi-arid, cold, dry, hot,..) or regions nearby water sources like lakes, rivers, seas or oceans! To accelerate the process professional greenhouses will be installed. The project starts primarily near coasts with building greening camps. It is 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.

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.

We negotiate with some countries or people because of the first place(s). No worries, with the right support we will find a place at the coast of a country in Africa. The place in the basic info section is just an example.

The fundamental basic concept and all imporant details are clear, also variants for typical or different coastlines and dry areas nearby. More details, nessesary material, equipment and technics will be released during the development process. The basic camp can start also under certain circumstances, conditions or requirements.

With the time we want to integrate the region and people, support social, cultural and sustainable developments, share education and life experience.

In short, Greening Deserts and connected projects want to produce topsoil, typical plants of the region, building materials and build parks for a better environment. Positive side effects are the reduction of the rapid climate change, to build a fresh water network, creating more cleaner air, integration and support of good developments such as education.

Once reached a large scale, this project will not only save the environment by making it greener and improve the oxygen levels on earth, but also reduce the hunger crisis spread across various countries in the world to a significant level. There is no time to wait and we calling for each support!

Please help to stop the climate change with this epochal project. If all runs good we can start the preparations of the first greenhouse camp still this year. Every donation counts and helps to realise the project.

Of course, constructive advices, recommendations or suggestions and any other types of support are always welcome!

Risks and challenges

How explained above we still looking for the first place(s). We will start so fast as we can and will include the people of the region. The first month we need to check the connection to the sea and nearest city. After this we will hire some workers we checked before and invite supporters want to help us to build up the first camp with the first greenhouses.

For basic energy supply we will use solar energy, if enough money left we can buy or build our own solar field in the area. With partners like Atmocean we could pump in future much more water into the area, also in other dry areas need drink water.

If we don't get real support from the government we will invite more organisations and strong personalities of the country to support the project. With a good risk management we can overcome or handle any risks fast and efficient.

It's difficult to get so much money with one crowdfunding campaign, partial financing is possible - the money of this campaign is for first preparations and the first months of the startup! It would cover the costs for a little basis camp with two or three greenhouses, a container, tents, materials and important equipment like water pumps and solar panels.

The smallest version, the base camp with one or two little greenhouses with essential equipment and services will cost approximately 10,000 to 30,000 €, depends on the country or region.

For a really big Greening Desert Camp with 4-5 medium sized greenhouses and bigger water pumps 150,000 € will be required, includes the project development costs, premises (lease), equipment, material, promotion, site personnel, necessary fees, services and more.. There will be further current costs (salaries, minor repairs, etc.) and operating costs which will be different in each specific area or region. Especially for the development of good teams in place financial resources are needed.

Maybe you want to join the team, be a future partner, sponsor or investor? Each constructive advises, suggestions and support is welcome! Check the official pages for more information.
