Sekem: A Sustainable Community in the Egyptian Desert
Dr Ibrahim Abouleish
In 1977 [the writer] founded an agricultural and social settlement on 70 hectares of desert land. His vision was to build a farm which grew bio-dynamic crops out of the harsh desert sand ... a place where Islam and Western Technology could come together in harmony. In 2004 Dr Abouleish was named one of the world's Ten Outstanding Social Entrepreneurs by the Schwab Foundation.
