I have a picture of Che posted in my kitchen to remind me to aspire to be brave, persistent, compassionate and adventurous. I will do all I can to learn more about Cuba and the Cuban people's struggles—past and present. Cuba is in a unique position as the only country in the world that has gone so far into organic farming/gardening. We should all treasure that ... Every organic grower, given the opportunity to meet the Cuban growers, would be inspired and strengthened.
I wanted to thank EVERYONE for their effort in making this trip possible. Everyone involved was so wonderful, I was blown away with the team and our travel group … I am going to love staying connected to hear what everyone is doing to improve their farms and communities in food sovereignty!
“[I am looking forward to using the] simple construction of grow houses and perimeter fencing that we learned about on the trip on my farm. I’ll also be incorporating a bio digester for Methyne gas. I have major respect for the Cuban farmers for using ox and draft power to plow and for transportation.”
