In 1954, Prime minister David Ben Gourion, one of the founder of State of Israel, travelled to Negev Region, a huge sea of sand occupying almost the half part of the south of the country. From those lands he wrote : “ All those who make the desert bloom will be welcomed by hundreds or thousands, even millions”. His words recalled the words of the prophet Isaia, who predicted "the moorland and the dry earth rejoice, and the desert blossom as a rose". And this is what, the reserchers at Sde Boker, pretend to do. In this University-town is the Jacob Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research, leading center in the study of arid regions of the planet.
