Their primary line of work is chemical-free agriculture, which relies on 230 different natural resources. They have allowed 80,000 olive trees and 300,000 palm trees to flourish in the oasis. Due to the fruit orchards, the air is fragrant with the aroma of peach, granite, guway, orange, and lemon. Numerous herbs, hibiscus plants, and countless olive trees can be seen next to the orchards.
