Visit the Greenheart Organic Farms
In a desert country that relies most on imported produce to meet its food requirements, the ability to farm locally is one with important implications - for food production, sustainability and community health. Elena Kinane, the founder of Greenheart Organic Farms, takes groups of interested visitors to her very own farm and educates them about how to sustainably convert desert into farmland. She has the unique ability to put organic farming jargon into simple terms that will interest and enlighten even a farming newbie. Her extensive knowledge of the organic farming lifecycle, including management of seeds, soil and sweet water, is impressive and inspiring. And there's nothing more rejuvenating than popping a few handpicked, burstingly sweet cherry tomatoes in your mouth as you soak in Elena's farming insights!
