Zaatari refugee camp

SHEFF-Yield seminar series: Desert Garden

11th March 20216:00pm

This is the fourth webinar from the SHEFF-Yield series that aims to teach Sheffield how and why to grow your own food at home.

Dr Moaed Al Meselmani – Researcher in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, The University of Sheffield

About the event

In collaboration with the UNHCR more than 1,000 refugees have been trained in hydroponic techniques. Initially one our speakers, Dr Moaed Al Meselmani, did the training. But now refugee trainers do so, making the diffusion of knowledge self-sustaining.

Now you can join Tony and Moaed as they explain their work at Zaatari, including hydroponics and the Desert Garden appeal.
