Main Activity: Empower and sustain Cairo’s low income communities through rooftop farming

Start Year: 1970

Schaduf was established in 2011 to empower and sustain Cairo’s low income communities through rooftop farming. The Arabic word “schaduf” refers to an ancient irrigation tool, which lifts water to irrigation canals. In our case, we lift water, sunshine, and life to barren concrete walls and roofs.

We aim to provide inspired urban green solutions that elevate the quality of life through social and environmental change. We do so by crafting sustainable spaces that adapt to diverse communities’ needs. Our state-of-the-art products include rooftop farms, roof gardens and vertical wall gardens, as well as a multitude of eco products and solutions. As a leader in the industry our trendy solutions combine smart automated control with a knowledgeable and dedicated design, consulting and maintenance team.

We are constantly pushing the boundaries of life sciences, engineering and art to cater to the needs of our customers and their wellbeing.
