The futureof farming

The Desert Farm is an open-sided structure shaded by a V-shaped roof. The space is lined with waist-high panels adorned with trailing green plants and a large vertical garden wall welcomes visitors. Under the roofline, an open exhibit space is surrounded by small trees and crops growing in planter boxes. In the centre is a large aquarium full of tilapia fish.


Explore the farm of the future, which uses saltwater and fish to grow crops in the desert.

Learn how some of The Desert Farm's plants can be turned into biofuel to power machines.
