Farming the desert might be the last thing you would expect, how can food possible grow in such dry and arid environments? However one such project is proving that the impossible, is possible.

Initially considered a ridiculous enterprise by scientists and agriculturalists, Mr. Abouleish and the SEKEM community have demonstrated that innovative cultivation and a love of compost, can equate to nothing short of a miracle.  Using sustainable agricultural practices to re-green arid desert regions, Mr. Abouleish passionately explains how SEKEM has managed to establish itself as a diverse community of innovative thinkers, proving that with compost, perseverance and a little bit of love, we really can restore and regenerate our environments.
