Greening Deserts is a cultural, educational, economic, scientific, social and sustainable project for greening, irrigation and forestation of dry areas or regions. 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 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.
With the right support we could use newest cultivation techniques for growing up cuttings (especially desert plants) in greenhouses. In future we could produce much more filtered ocean water and pump it with renewable energy into the dry areas of the countries. We want to start everywhere it’s possible to get topsoil and fresh water, especially in dry countries like Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Spain, Lebanon, Syria, Saudia Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Iran, Pakistan, India, China, etc.
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!
This is an example video that 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.
