From Sand To Green

We cultivate deserts through unique agroforestry model and solar desalination.


Agriculture is the second bigger CO2 emittor sector, mainly because of deforestation and our need of arables lands to feed an ever growing population. From Sand to Green tackle this problem by creating new arable lands in desert through agroforestry and desalination.

To do so, we offer our agroforestry plantation as green investment with over performing ROI and the highest impact on the market, providing transparency tools to all stakeholders.

The From Sand to Green solution is divided into 3 distinct bricks:

• A unique agroforestry methodology, the result of 3 years of R&D and integrating a rigorous scientific approach and satellite analysis techniques

• Agroforestry plantations generating different incomes and productions adapted to local, national and international markets

• Containerized solar-powered water desalination units, with brine management
