Our mission is to grow a community of people around the ideas of building resilience and local reliance and to become a vibrant community space for networking, collaboration, cooperation, and learning.
The Vine Communities Cafe concept centers around providing support to local ingredient providers through our network of local growers and homemade goods.
The Coffee Shop will primarily serve light snacks and drinks to the center visitors, such as our students and parents; however, it will also be open to the public, who will have the opportunity to witness the learning process taking place at the center.
One of the hallmarks of healthy and resilient communities is learning and knowledge transfer. We believe that self-instigated learning is a key aspect to ignite passion towards the subject matters that will be discussed during the learning process.
Vine Communities Library provides reliable resources and books that will fulfill the need for self-driven learning.
Community members will be able to donate books relevant to the topics discussed at the center. The library is part of the Cafe and is open to the public.
The Meeting Room
The meeting room is designed for team meetings and is open for rental by individuals and companies.
The Garden Room is where most gardening classes take place; it is designed to provide an indoor space for most gardening activities. It is fitted with an indoor vertical garden that hosts indoor editable and ornamental plants for demonstration purposes.
The Garden room is also an ideal place for corporate team meetings and external workshops. Contact us for more information on booking the space.
In collaboration with Um Al Emarat Park, Vine Communities runs a schedule of gardening classes during the growing season. Classes such as Introduction to Organic Gardening, Know Your Pests, and Introduction to Composting ensure optimal understanding of the subject matter and allow an ideal outdoor space for experimenting and trial and error.
The Classroom is where most of the theoretical learning takes place. The classroom primarily hosts theory and practical workshops focused on soft skills training, scientific and theory-based courses in gardening, permaculture, and financial acumen training for both adults and children.
The classroom space will have a cozy, relaxed feel that will allow our children to feel that they are away from the school environment to ensure receptivity of knowledge.
The Classroom is also an ideal place for corporate team meetings and external workshops. Contact us for more information on booking the space.
The Learning Kitchen
The Learning Kitchen is the space where most of the cooking, canning, and food preservation classes take place.
The space is designed to include a homestyle fitted kitchen for students to have the opportunity for hands-on training and learn the essential life skills taught at the center.
We believe that learning is social, experiential, and contextual. Our programs cater to all of these elements to ensure effective knowledge transfer.
The Workshop area runs hands-on classes such as sewing, sustainable crafts, and recycling projects. It is also the space for students to experiment and explore different passions during their Lab Hours.
The Workshop room is also an ideal place for corporate team meetings and external workshops. Contact us for more information on booking the space.
The Idea Lab
The Idea Lab is a space designed for community idea sharing and collaboration. In there, we run several programs, such as innovation and problem-solving sessions. We also run facilitated brainstorming sessions to help create a space where the community is focused on generating solutions that benefit themselves and their environment.
