I am Hadeer arrived the REEF house with the crew coming from Egypt @Ghassan_faisal @m_tantawy and Noha on 13.02 and lived there till 29.04. I knew first about Edgeryders from @hazem when I first used the platform to talk about Trash into Toys then he explained to me the openvilage house and we discussed what we can do to engage the house with the community we live in.
We wanted to do many projects with the community especially the school but knocking the official doors first through the school and the local association didn’t work well, you can know more here . However, While we were trying to do it officially, we developed good relation with the families in the village that they would invite us to their houses and from that we held multiple workshops in their houses, you can see the main activities here with @komitas , here and finally @matthias one-one bicycle workshop to Yassin who told us latter that he is aiming ti fix his friends bikes as well.
Living between the house and the village brought a lot of special moments to me, the most recent one was when we had a meal consist of bread made by ourselves , Argan oil we participated in its extraction and “Samin” we watched the process of making it. It was eating something 100% Sidi Kaoukian we witnessed ourselves starting from its raw materials.

Village life inspired me a lot of the lifestyle I am comfortable with that I am learning now more about agriculture and communities having this lifestyle. Moreover, living with people having different expertises taught me a lot being introduced to things for me was kind of magic. Examples Dates magic from @islem, also the machine learning by @Imake, Photorealistic 3D visualization @Sofien-Dahem , migrating to more open uncontrolled digital life from @matthias and more and moreeeee.
