Here's what to expect at the UAE's first Organic Festival
Eat better, feel better…
Want to start eating clean but not sure where to start? The UAE’s first ever Annual Organic Festival hosted by Emirates Bio Farm will be held this month from Thursday February 20 to Saturday February 22, 2020 and is the perfect way to get you started on your path to clean eating habits.
The festival will celebrate what it means to be organic and sustainable in UAE and will feature educational, fun and immersive experiences for the community. It will also feature several organic brands and supporters all under one farm.
The three-day event will take place in Emirates Bio Farm which is the largest privately-owned organic farm in the UAE located between Dubai and Al Ain amidst the red desert dunes of Al Shuwaib.
Here’s what you can expect at the festival
Emirates Bio Farm promotes environmental protection, the health and well-being of all UAE residents and their ethos is “Learn, Eat, Play, Shop” – a theme which will transcend into the Organic Festival.
The festival will be hosting guided tractor tours every hour which will take you into the heart of lush green fields. Here you will receive educational facts on organic farming and can even get firsthand experience on harvesting your own vegetables.
The main greenhouse will host talks on diverse topics such as establishment of the organic industry in the UAE, as well as wellness talks and nutrition workshops. Each session will be open to an interactive Q&A session, so come prepared with your questions.
After receiving a wealth of knowledge, you can finally savour seasonal meals made up of the organic produce. If you just want a snack, you can stop by one of the food stalls and savour an organic sandwich and other snacks.
And of course, there will be plenty of shopping you can do. Several stalls at the festival will be selling a diverse range of home grown and international organic products. There will also be live music and fun workshops for both the adults and little ones.
