Khalifa Date Palm
Last March, Pieter Hoff received the prestigious Khalifa International Date Palm Award in Abu Dhabi. Curious about his journey? This is one of the many international awards that Groasis has received since 2008.
Pieter Hoff has been interviewed by the television program “Een Vandaag”. His message is that we must reforest all affected areas of the world in a sustainable and water-saving way for our (grand) children.
Harvest twice within 12 months after planting? Nothing is impossible! Watch the testimonial of the United Nations World Food Programme Innovation Accelerator project in Colombia and be amazed.

The development of our sustainable products
The world is changing. Sometimes at a faster pace than we would like. Where problems arise, new opportunities arise at the same time. Groasis Ecological Water Saving Technology has developed over time into a complete technology that allows people in even the driest and most eroded areas to plant trees in combination with shrubs, vegetables or flowers. Everything in a simple and environmentally friendly way.
Our successful products were not created within a day. Many years of testing, running back and forth to the drawing board and developing prototypes have ensured that we have now developed an efficient, very affordable, sustainable and water-saving method for planting trees, shrubs and plants. Which products do you recognize above?
Take action and join us!
Because we cannot make this world greener by ourselves, we need your help. In 2016 we established “Friends of Groasis” with the aim of recruiting as many motivated people as possible who believe in our realistic dream of reforesting the world in a sustainable and responsible manner.
