I went to Cuba! November-December 2011 I spent ten days in Habana and Pinar Del Rio, Cuba studying sustainable urban agriculture. I was a sponge, soaking up all the wisdom, experience, positivity, and success I could. We, our group of 17 Witness For Peace delegates from all over the USA, could teach Cubans no thing about growing food sustainably. If we were a mission trip our mission was to listen and learn.
Advanced methods of community organizing were in practice and successfully transforming neighborhoods. Especially interesting to me were the rooftop gardens and home based cafeterias throughout Habana.
I love talking about Cuba - and all foreign places. Message me for more stories or to share your stories!
