What Can We Learn from Cuba's Organic Farms? video

This 6-minute video highlights the success of Cuban farmers in growing their food using organic agriculture practices. This method was adopted incidentally in the 90s when the country lost its access to fertilizers, fuel, and food. Out of necessity, they began producing their own food without fertilizers, pesticides, or fuel for tractors. See the successes, benefits, and challenges of organic agriculture practices.
