The ‘Give a Ghaf’ tree planting initiative starts with a short awareness session about the local environment, water scarcity, indigenous plants and trees. Why the Ghaf tree? Because it’s representative of the harsh desert environment and the UAE’s national tree.
After the introduction, you’ll involve in various preparation tasks. And while you are enjoying the beautiful and peaceful setting of Green works, Al Barari farm. Once everything is ready, you’ll start seed planting before having a walking tour around the Al Barari farm. Here, you’ll learn about the fascinating features of the Ghaf tree.
“We take care of the seeds for about 2 years; until they are strong enough for the outside world. Then, We give the trees to the community to plant them in parks, schools or urban areas.”
