Organic Farm in the Desert | Greenheart Organic Farm

Have you ever thought how organic crops are grown in a sandy landscape, under high temperature for almost the whole year? It remained a mystery to me, until I got a chance to visit an organic farm in the middle of the desert. Thanks to Homeschool Global for organizing the field trip to Greenheart Organic Farm.

Along with the students, I get to enjoy the trip. I guess my husband and I has benefited from this trip more than our boys. It was very informative and has raised an awareness on how these delicious and nutritious crops are grown. It grows our desire to go for a healthier diet for our family. Organic is arguably the nutritious and cleanest food we can feed our family.

Before this trip, I don’t have any idea how the organic thing works in UAE. And it amazes me, that in the heart of the desert, there are grow houses, impressive cooling system and water reservation system that grows and produces clean and healthy food. At greenheart, they grow their produce from heirloom seeds, they even produce their own manure and compost. The result is an authentic organic fruit & vegetable.

It was refreshing seeing those greens. We get to see tomatoes on the vine, vibrant colors of capsicum, field of mint leaves, green iceberg lettuces, baby cucumbers and its shining flowers, cabbages, beet roots and many more, I even forgot their names. There are goats and chicken, producing manure. They also have their own well where they get their water supply. You see, it’s really a sustainable farm in the desert.

After weeks or months of dreaming, discussing, and budgeting, you are now finally ready to start the remodeling of your home. The only details that are between you and a house that is even more beautiful and function are what contractors to hire and what projects to which to give the green light.

You can finalize plans for both of these details by going online to check out the latest in home renovation contractors and get inspiration for both interior and exterior project. Everything that you need to finish off your plans may be available to you on the website today.

Vetting Contractors

Even if you are on the most modest of budgets, you still want professional contractors who can give you the highest level of service. You do not want to trade quality for low costs. You can find contractors who can get the work done to your satisfaction at a price that fits in your budget by using the website’s listing of area home remodeling businesses. This listing gives you all of the contact details you need to decide what contractors to take bids from and which ones to overlook.

When it comes to vetting bids, you do not need to call each contractor one by one and ask for a price. The website can gather bids for you so that you know who is offering the lowest price and which ones are offering competitive pricing on quality work. You can then accept the bid that is in line most with your needs and arrange for a time for the work to start.

Project Ideas

You cannot green light the start of the work without knowing what projects you want done on your home. If you have been wavering on what projects to start and what ones to hold off until later, you can decide for sure by using the website as a reference.

You can also get project ideas if you have difficulties deciding what work to actually approve. You may come across ideas you never entertained prior to looking at the website.

All of the months of planning come down to the most important details of what projects to start and who to hire for the job. You can finalize both goals by using the website’s contractor suggestions and by exploring interior and exterior project ideas.
