About

SAF Urban Garden is a community outreach initiative that invites audiences to use the garden for social and educational events, planting and sharing produce.

Nestled between the SAF Art Spaces, the garden is tucked away and blended into the architecture. Upon entering you encounter different edibles, herbs and trees, products of the children’s gardening workshops and niches to sit in.

Currently, SAF offers workshops for garden enthusiasts to expand their knowledge and creative workshops such as botanical illustration and painting. Discussions around urbanism and sustainability also take place. As this is an open space, audiences are invited to participate by visiting the garden and proposing ideas for workshops and discussions.

  • Overview

    As a community initiative, your ideas and participation is important to us. SAF invites you to gather your friends and family in the garden, participate in discussions, improve your gardening skills and propose any events or talks that are important to you and your community. Please visit this page as we update it with upcoming workshops and events open to all ages.

    If you would like to take part or propose an idea, please email us at community@sharjahart.org

    Entry to SAF Urban Garden is free and open to the public.

  • Overview

    A series of brainstorming and planning meetings were held in 2013 to carry out research, and to plan the design and production of the garden. The production was a collective process which included architects, designers and members of the local community.

    The garden was inaugurated on March 1, 2014, with a market selling locally grown produce, artwork and crafts alongside workshops and activities organised as part of SAF’s Education Programme.
