Two decades ago, Cuba was the first country to convert from industrial agriculture to organic agriculture. Today, Cuba is converting a major part of its economy to cooperatives.
Want to learn more about how this island nation is striving for food sovereignty as it reorganizes its economy? You’re in luck. OCA, Vía Orgánica and the Center for Global Justice are sponsoring a 8-day trip to Cuba, January 13 - January 21.
The trip will include visits to organic gardens and cooperatives, an ecological zone and a community project. You’ll have an opportunity to talk with specialists in sustainable agriculture, the Cuban economy and health system, U.S.-Cuban relations and more.
Deadline to register is November 1. For all the details, including how to apply, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
