Our vision is to help every home in the Middle East to have a sustainable garden.
We started in 2017 as a Facebook group to help gardeners in the Middle East share knowledge around gardening in the challenging environment we face. To date we have more than 4,500 members with 12,000 interactions a week. So we thought why not take that knowledge and experience and help every home in the Middle East to have a sustainable garden producing fruit and veggies.
