• What Cuba can teach America about organic farming

    Many people in America are proponents of the organic food movement, and worried about the potentially harmful effects of pesticides on their health or the environment. In Cuba, farmers have gone organic for a very different reason – they had to. In this final instalment of our series “The Cuban Evoltion” Jeffrey Brown looks at food and farming.

  • 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.

  • Why Organic, Sustainable Farming Matters | Portrait of a Farmer

    When it comes to your food, nature always has the last word. Most pro-organic documentaries make their point by taking stabs at the cruelty and other evils involved in the world of industrialized farming. In this short documentary portrait, Jesse Straight, owner of Whiffletree Farm, shows us a different approach. As he gestures to the beautiful landscapes that surround us he explains, "being a farmer is special because this is my office. You spend your day making animals happy...you get to do things that help the things around you thrive". The passion that Jesse exudes in this film will make you question every fast-food burger you've ever eaten, but for all the right reasons.

  • Sustainable Agriculture and Food Production in a Changing Cuba

    January 11, 2017 Cuba has experienced dramatic change in its agricultural sector. Prompted in part by the loss of economic support from the former Soviet Union, including fertilizers, pesticides, tractors and petroleum, and dramatic agrarian reform that encouraged private and cooperative land ownership, Cuban farmers have increased food production through smaller scale, low-input farming practices, and nearly one fourth of Cuban farms are organic. Although Cuba continues to depend on costly food imports, its innovations in agroecology science and practice have reduced food insecurity in Cuba and present a thought provoking model for sustainable food production.

(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.

January 11, 2017 Cuba has experienced dramatic change in its agricultural sector. Prompted in part by the loss of economic support from the former Soviet Union, including fertilizers, pesticides, tractors and petroleum, and dramatic agrarian reform that encouraged private and cooperative land ownership, Cuban farmers have increased food production through smaller scale, low-input farming practices, and nearly one fourth of Cuban farms are organic. Although Cuba continues to depend on costly food imports, its innovations in agroecology science and practice have reduced food insecurity in Cuba and present a thought provoking model for sustainable food production. PRESENTERS • Fernando R. Funes-Monzote, PhD., Agroecologist Researcher, Consultant and Farmer • Audley Burford, Latin America Marketing Manager, CHS Inc. • Shannen Bornsen Nettleton, International Sales Manager, Seneca Foods CorporationChris Bercaw, Partner, Dorsey & Whitney LLP **NOTE: Watching this recording does not allow the user to obtain CLE, CPD, CPE or HR credits.

Focusing on globalization and capitalism, sustainability, police brutality, protests, small farmers, GMOs, organic agriculture and food -- food justice -- this 80-minute, HD award-winning documentary was filmed in Mexico, Cuba, Haiti, Kenya, Zambia, India, Brazil and across the United States in Oakland, Iowa, Immokalee, Washington D.C., Pine Ridge reservation and White Earth reservation (including world music from Manu Chao, Immortal Technique and many more). "Greening the Revolution" features interviews with small farmers and revolutionaries, intellectuals such as Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, and Vandana Shiva, as well as government and corporate officials such as the director of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and a vice president for GMO corporation Monsanto.

Focusing on issues such as GMOs, government coruption, farmer suicides, diabetes, migrant farm workers and hunger, the film also looks at the resistance to harmful economic policies, amazing sustainable alternatives, organic agriculture practiced by brilliant small farmers, and the overall courage and hope found in the hearts of people refusing to accept a food system based on profits over human dignity.
