Today, the agriculture is the principal activity in Siwa. The olives and the dates are the most cultivated fruits. The olive trees and the palm trees produce massive quantities of fruits; one of the most popular products that is used in Egypt and also exported to the entire Europe is the extra virgin olive oil made in Siwa. Since the Siwa's agriculture is chemical free, there are opportunities for those who cultivate organic products. The framers of Siwa are sustained trough different programs, especially financial ones. More, there in Siwa was built a center that has as activity the olives` harvest. This center respects the standards of the international marketing. Another financial program will supply cattle for the oasis` animal wealth. The biogas digesters will be the new source of energy in Siwa. The biogas can be used in lightening and cooking and the organic compost of high-quality will be produced by the digesters. In present, the low-grade manure is imported from Marsa Matrouh which is not at all an advantage since Matrouh is situated at 300 km away and the costs are high. The agricultural land of Siwa has gardens carefully kept and with complex drainage and watering systems; these systems are in connection with a natural spring. The salination in Siwa can be prevent by the drainage's management and by the irrigation's judicious use. These measures will also allow the good topsoil` s gradual development; in Siwa each garden is a symbol of many generations` effort as well as the symbol of a commune investment of effort and time. One of the most impressive gardens in Siwa has a 100 meters diameter and lies in the centre of a salt lake. Its access is possible through a narrow footpath that has a 300 meters length.
