 The first of our heroes, Dov Pasternak, is the father of the Farmers of the Future project.

When Dov Pasternak was 16 years old, his school took an excursion to the Negev Desert. When he returned, he told his friends, "I am going to be an agricultural scientist to make the desert bloom!" And that is exactly what he has done.  With world class knowledge, Professor Dov has devoted his life to growing food in the most challenging places on earth.  In the last 15 years he has helped thousands of impoverished farmers in Africa use agriculture as a path out of extreme poverty.
