  • Organic farming provides fesh food in Cuba

    (12 Aug 2016) LEAD IN: Cuba's former President Fidel Castro celebrates his 90th birthday today (August 13, 2016). Things have changed on the island nation since Castro's brother Raul replaced him as president in February 2008. Cuba's urban organic farms are aiming to supply citizens directly with sustainable fresh food and challenge the reliance on food imported from abroad. STORY-LINE: This is an organoponico or urban organic farm. Just two kilometres from Havana, the capital city, the Vivero Alamar farm is at the forefront of Cuban organic agriculture. Cuba has a longstanding culture of organic farming by necessity.

  • Havana Homegrown: Inside Cuba's Urban Agriculture Revolution

    This video from the nonprofit group SeedMoney (http://seedmoney.org ) looks at the urban agriculture revolution in Havana, Cuba and its origins. Cuba is not only an island nation in terms of its geography, but also its economy and politics as a result of the US embargo and the fall of the Soviet Union, Cuba's largest source of trade and aid until the Berlin Wall fell in 1991. Cut off from the world's pipeline of food, oil, chemical pesticides and fertilizers, Cuba embarked upon an ambitious program to grow as much of its own organic food as possible in the 1990s during what was known as the "special period." This short video produced by the nonprofit group Kitchen Gardeners International (KGI) peeks into Havana's urban farms and gardens to see what lessons they have to offer other citi...

(12 Aug 2016) LEAD IN: Cuba's former President Fidel Castro celebrates his 90th birthday today (August 13, 2016). Things have changed on the island nation since Castro's brother Raul replaced him as president in February 2008. Cuba's urban organic farms are aiming to supply citizens directly with sustainable fresh food and challenge the reliance on food imported from abroad. STORY-LINE: This is an organoponico or urban organic farm. Just two kilometres from Havana, the capital city, the Vivero Alamar farm is at the forefront of Cuban organic agriculture. Cuba has a longstanding culture of organic farming by necessity. During the "Special Period" of the 1990s, many private urban plots popped up in Havana amid the austerity that followed the collapse of Cuba's backer, the Soviet Union. Isis Maria Salcines Milla, an urban organic farming specialist at the Alamar Project, explains. "This transformative model in Cuba was designed to deal with the conditions of the "special period" (when the economy collapsed after the Soviet Union withdrew financial support of Cuba in 1992) because we went from a conventional agricultural model to a green revolution, from the use of insecticides, pesticides, fertilisers, an unhealthy way of production, to this model. So, when we began this model, we had to become organic, not out of conviction but out of necessity. We either produced this way or we faced death by starvation," she says. Unlike in the United States, pesticide-free is largely the rule here rather than the exception, mostly due to a lack of supply. The organic farms are creating a direct link between the producers and the owners of private restaurants in the non-state sector. A new generation of privately run restaurants known as "paladars" has breathed life into Cuba's culinary scene. Ivan Rodriguez Lopez is the owner of a paladar called "El Carbon". "In urban organic farming there are no fertilisers. Organic fertilisers are a result of the needs of the farmers. And for me that's an advantage." Kaski Kosakowski, is a member of "Sustainable Summer", a US organisation that prepares teens to become environmental leaders. Today she is overseeing a group of American teens weeding a row of lettuce at an organic farm. "So we been here for almost two weeks. We leave in a couple of days, looking at cultural sustainability and environment sustainability while the relationship between Cuba and the United States is changing and developing. And we are here today to learn a little bit more about the food system here and particularly take advantage of the cultural project outside of Havana and the history of organoponicos (urban organic farming)." Americans cannot travel as ordinary tourists to Cuba under current US regulations, but they may participate in certain types of trips, including people-to-people trips that foster cultural exchanges. US interest in Cuba has climbed rapidly since President Barack Obama announced diplomatic ties would be restored on December 17, 2014. Timothy Smith is another member of the Sustainable Summer project. "Cuba imports a lot of their food, so locally grown food is always a good option. But you just got to get the people to start buying locally and that's all part of what we are learning about doing the sustainable lifestyle," he says. According to the World Food Programme, Cuba imports 70 to 80 percent of the food it needs from abroad. Proponents of urban organic farming say it has immense potential to boost domestic production. But it is unlikely to meet all of Cuba's food needs, and government interference tends to limit organic urban farms' production and distribution. Lopez says he would rather buy from the organoponico than a government controlled market.
