In 2011, Goumbook was proud to launch the “Give a Ghaf” Tree Planting Programme to raise public awareness about the Ghaf and its values, while encouraging people to plant indigenous trees and raising awareness on water scarcity.
The Protected Areas Authority (EPAA) in Sharjah was the first to support the initiative by generously supplying the first Ghaf seeds, part of their biological diversity bank.
This year the seeds were again provided by EPAA and also by EAD (the Environment Agency Abu Dhabi).
The Give a Ghaf is proud to have partnered with Greenworks in order to support the planting efforts and take care of the trees: each plant in Greenworks is diligently tended to by a team of 60 experts who secure the adequate temperature, wind and soil consistency for every leaf on the premises.
Greenworks is different from anything else currently on offer in the UAE. Located within the Al Barari development in Nada Al Sheba, Greenworks provide high level services from the growing of plants and trees, to landscape design, construction and maintenance, as well as seasonal services for both indoor and outdoor plants. For almost ten years, Greenworks has exclusively serviced Al Barari, carefully nurturing the lush greenery that makes up 80% of this unique eco-conscious development.
Today, Greenworks has joined Goumbook to welcome individuals, groups and corporations to share the passion for nature, plants and environmental sustainability.
