Stories of Food and Farming in Cuba – Film, Travelogue and Discussion
This Fourth Friday, learn about the Organic Revolution that started in the 90s in Cuba and how it has progressed in the last 30 years. With the continued opening of Cuba, more change is in the wind:
We’ll begin by watching Tierralismo, the story of Vivero Alamar an urban cooperative farm on the edge of Havana, founded during the Special Period to feed its community. The 153 owners of the farm live in the neighborhood, work on the property and share in the bounty it produces and the profit from sales.
We’ll conclude with a travelogue from Peter Ruddock, who recently visited Cuba as part of the first Slow Food California trip to that country, where he visited urban farms, including Vivero Alamar, local restaurants, Cuban food and farming experts and much, much more, all while learning how fast the landscape is changing as Cuba continues to open to the world.
