Musleh’s journey into the world of agriculture commenced at a mere three and a half years old when his innate curiosity led him to experiment with hydroponic gardening.

From humble beginnings of cultivating leaves and plants in water containers, Musleh’s fascination with the greenery around him soon blossomed into a full-fledged commitment to sustainable farming practices.

Today, Musleh’s days are filled with the nurturing care of an array of crops, ranging from arugula to tomatoes, showcasing a diversity of produce uncommon for most his age.

His after-school routine is anything but ordinary, as he diligently tends to his micro-farm, watering, weeding, pruning, and harvesting with a level of responsibility that belies his years.

“Harvest time is my favourite,” Musleh shares with a gleam in his eye. “It’s the culmination of my hard work, and being able to share the bounty with my family and neighbours brings me immense joy.”

Indeed, Musleh’s passion for farming extends beyond personal gratification; he harbours aspirations of contributing to the food security of the UAE by managing large-scale agricultural operations.

With unwavering support from his father, who provided the initial land and seeds, Musleh is already setting his sights on ambitious projects aimed at cultivating rare, imported crops.

“I want to become an expert in agriculture and manage the biggest vegetable and fruit farm one day,” Musleh declares with unwavering optimism. His journey thus far has not been without its challenges, as he encounters setbacks like failed crops or inedible produce.

Yet, Musleh’s resilience shines through as he perseveres, learning from each experience and honing his skills along the way. “Farming teaches you patience,” Musleh reflects sagely. “You have to keep trying until you get it right.”

Beyond the tangible benefits of supplementing his family’s food supply, Musleh credits farming with instilling in him a sense of accomplishment and resilience. “Providing for my family’s needs gives me a big sense of accomplishment at my age,” he shares proudly.

For young individuals aspiring to follow in his footsteps, Musleh offers sage advice: immerse yourself in the world of agriculture through books, videos, courses, and visits to local farms.

Above all, he emphasizes the importance of patience and persistence, reminding fellow enthusiasts that the rewards of hard work will inevitably come to fruition.

As Musleh continues to nurture his dreams amidst the fertile soil of Al Ain, his story serves as a beacon of inspiration for aspiring agriculturists across the UAE.

With unwavering determination and a steadfast commitment to excellence, this young prodigy is sowing the seeds of a brighter, more sustainable future for generations to come.
