On the 8th of October the Streetlife Festival will take place in Munich and we will be a part of it. We will have our own little stand and inform about our project in Cameroon. To make it more interactive we want to offer people to seed some plants in a pot and take it home. In this context we are now looking for someone who is willing to donate plant soil.

Over the last 25 years approximately 24% of worldwide soils degraded. The impacts of the so called desertification are severe. Affected areas become infertile and lose their natural soil functions. With our project we actively combat desertification in Cameroon and thereby support the local population. In cooperation with the University of Bremen we developed a simple entrepreneurial approach. Biodegradable sacks filled with a mixture of compost, diverse substrates and of course plant seeds are placed on the affected fields. We empower people to manufacture and distribute the sacks within the framework of their own business. Water and nutrients can be absorbed easier and the soil gets his functions back sustainably.
