School trips at Emirates Bio Farm

Our field trip for schools are focused on education over a two to three hour program for students of all ages. We aim to reinforce topics taught in the school by showing practical examples based on curriculum provided by the school. We aim to educate by allowing students participate in all aspects of farming from seed to harvest.

We welcome school groups on Mondays to Thursdays from November through to April.

The main focus of our educational programs is the farm tour. All students will participate in hands on learning throughout the sessions that are catered to all age groups.

Optional Add-ons

Farm to table nutrition class: We offer an immersive nutrition class which is all about making healthy choices. We focus on aspects that promote the right relationship with food- especially with fruits and vegetables!

Plant a tree: We offer an opportunity for students to contribute in combating climate change through a tree planting activity of the UAE national tree- the Ghaf tree. Students can participant in greening the desert by planting a Ghaf tree in the area that surrounds the farm. We include a plaque ceremony, will have an irrigation and space set up, and continue to have our team nurture it so students can come back to visit their class’s tree.

Plant a Seedling: Students will learn proper planting and maintenance techniques while preparing a vegetable pot to take home.

Organic Lunch: Treat the students to an organic lunch after a day of learning in the fields. We grow 55 varieties of vegetable and fruit at Emirates Bio Farm. All our dishes contain organic farm fresh produce, harvested just for you on the day of your event.
