Heenat Salma is an initiative dedicated to holistic methods in agriculture, architecture, and community development.

Our team is addressing the global need for ethical approaches to local agricultural initiatives, driven by the purpose to heal the land.

Our team is addressing the global need for ethical approaches to local agricultural initiatives, driven by the purpose to heal the land.

In 2019 the Caravane Earth Foundation brought together a group of dedicated experts in agronomy, architecture, and water infrastructure to develop a holistic farm model and ten year strategy aimed at both converting a conventional farm into a centre for regenerative agriculture and introducing effective permaculture into the extreme climatic conditions of the Arabian Peninsula.

Alongside agriculture, the farm is a place for hospitality, vocation, education, craftsmanship, and wellbeing — each field supporting and enhancing the others in an interconnected constellation of activity.

Lodging: the tents

We developed our camp using traditional tents positioned around a central fire. This instils a sense of community and belonging on the outside, while the tent interiors provide simple, private, and refined dwellings.

Complimentary afternoon snacks are provided in a presentation of non-processed, non-refined, guilt-free treats. The Majlis area dining room provides a space to share food, eat with others, and enjoy conversations.

We aim for a zero-waste kitchen: all organic kitchen waste is used for composting and the used water from the sinks is directed through a reed-bed system that cleans it, so it may be used for irrigation.
