Moreover, some workshops and training lessons are about to begin, before the three months contest, which begins in December.

First of all is the well-being of the residents. So, after the first successful edition of the campaign, a senior official announced that the emirate has become more aware of the significance of home cultivation and the requirement for protecting the earth and the environment.
