An Afternoon at a Saudi Farm

I write a monthly article for the WSB newsletter. The Women's Skills Bureau is an organization designed to help women expats within Riyadh. It is a great organization and one that I am proud to be a part of as well as  to contribute to. Our sponsor is a Saudi prince who owns a farm on the outskirts of Riyadh. Recently, the WSB gathered all those who are associated with it for a day of fun at the farm of our sponsor. My family and I attended the event and had great time networking and socializing with other families.

It was really interesting to walk around the farm and see the farming methods. The site was originally occupied by Turkish forces to oversee Arab Bedouins. They had a quarry. The quarry is now a beautiful plot of land cultivating organic vegetables.
