The desert farm is an open structure, shaded by a V-shaped roof, powered by solar energy. The goal of the farm is to make the most of three of the UAE's abundant natural resources: sun, sea and sand.

We can discover the breeding of tilapia, a fish that can survive in warm and salty water, and benefits the crops of the desert farm. Numerous educational panels tell us more about desert plants, such as samphire (sea bean) and quinoa, both of which thrive in salt water.

We can also find out how scientists are trying to turn deserts into farmland for grazing animals to curb deforestation.

The goal of this farm is to see the desert differently, no longer as a hostile place, but as a rich place for our future.
