The Bahrain International Garden Show is set to open next week under the theme ‘Water: Regenerating Life’.
More than 200 exhibitors from 27 countries, including Italy, Turkey, Japan, Malaysia and the Central African Republic are set to showcase their designs, products and innovations this year.
The Market Zone, held in hall one, will have companies and plant nurseries promoting flowers, saplings, agricultural tools, flowerpots, food products and garden furniture.
Hall two, the awareness zone, will feature official and educational organisations exhibit innovations and agricultural projects.
There will also be a special kids’ corner, called the Khalasi’s Garden, that will host eight workshops a day teaching your little ones about how much water plants need and how power is generated from water.
Plus, there will be a Bahraini farmers’ market where you can pick up local produce.
National Initiative for Agricultural Development secretary general Shaikha Maram bint Isa Al Khalifa said, “This year the show is held under the theme ‘Water: Regenerating Life’ and will focus on the importance of water and how to preserve it to guarantee its sustainability as it is the source of life on earth.
“It is expected that the rate of water consumption will continue to increase by up to 20 to 30 percent by the year 2050, which will exacerbate the problem if proper solutions are not implemented from now and if the culture of correct practices in using water resources is not spread.”
