Professional Research Program to Cuba
Sustainable Agriculture in Cuba
April 17-27, 2013
On this professional research trip you will learn about Cuba’s transition from conventional farming to low-input sustainable agriculture through visiting organic urban gardens, small and large farms, sugar mills, schools, and more. You will meet with urban and rural residents to learn techniques and ideas that can be brought back to the United States and shared with our communities, in order to learn how to create a more sustainable future worldwide.
