Greenhouse complex to function as training centre
The new greenhouse complex in Cairo is locally named as: “The city farm of Cairo”. This unique greenhouse project will be used not only for cultivation but also as a training center. The project is the start of a glasshouse horticulture area where sustainability and efficient use of water will play an essential role. The river Nile is the most important watersource. 85% of Egyptian water comes from the Nile. Food safety is under pressure due to the increasing population growth and the current production capacity as well as the availability of water. The start of this greenhouse complex will be the first step to control the challenges of nature.
