Our Story


Local Roots was established to enable our community to start producing their own organic food right from the comfort of their own home. Our mission is to spread knowledge of growing plants by using sustainable methods and techniques which are 100% organic. We aim to help the environment and the community by creating more gardens in the UAE. As gardeners ourselves, we recognize that we live in a harsh desert climate and face difficult growing situations in the UAE, that’s why everything we do is personally tried and tested. It doesn’t matter if you live in an apartment or a villa, we can make it possible to grow your own food right on your balcony or in your backyard.

Gardening is a great hobby for the young and old. We especially love to focus on the youth of our community, as we all know it may be hard to get kids to eat their vegetables but when they are involved in the process of growing food from seed to harvest, they will surely reap the benefits by eating what they grow. We are also involved with school projects, providing workshops and hands on learning to help children grow their own food right on campus.

Our goal is to provide you with the finest quality seeds and soil.  As a company, we strive to bring you the best selection of organic and natural gardening supplies available. Most of our products are Certified Organic and everything we offer must live up to our strict, planet-friendly standards. We provide you with the most innovative gardening tools and equipment including locally made pine wood raised beds to get you started on your gardening journey.  Even if you are a beginner, don’t worry… we also provide a personal consultation and will help you every step of the way!

Let’s Get Growing!
