Considering the salty, sandy earth of Nuweiba, soil restoration has been an important focus of work at our farms. These days, we’ve developed fertile soil restoration methods to plant from—and restoration & regeneration in other areas is always ongoing. We’ve also opened Habiba Regenerative Farm as an open-air lab.
Planting vegetables, fruit and trees is what we do. Our organic farm extends over 16,000 m2 at the base of the Wadi Watir delta, about 2km from the sea. A huge variety of different species thrive, with crops changing seasonally to supply fresh produce products for the community.
Throughout the years, experimentation has been essential at our farms. From soil to irrigation, non-native plant species and different vegetable varieties, or perma-culture growing techniques, we’ve tried—and still are—trying everything. And we’re getting fascinating results!
Training locals and visiting volunteers is another fruit of our labor! Everything we learn gets passed on in the spirit of knowledge sharing and creating a base for agritourism & edutourism. Ultimately, teaching allows us to enable sustainable economic alternatives in our local community & the South Sinai region.
Of course Habiba Organic Farm grows organic produce throughout the 4 seasons. Our fresh or dried vegetable & fruit products are available to purchase through our Green Box order & delivery system for Nuweiba and the region. Got an appetite? Have a taste of our produce at the Beach Lodge restaurant—or visit the farm!
Planting & harvesting is largely supported by volunteering. People from all over have joined us at Habiba Organic Farm as volunteers over the years. There’s always lots happening for learning, knowledge sharing, testing various growing methods, initiating projects—or just enjoying the fertile surroundings.
We welcome new volunteers to our community all-year-round. Want to join us? Keep reading!
