The Culture of Agriculture in Cuba
University of Utah
Sill Center - Main Conference Room
195 South Central Campus Drive
Join Wasatch Community Gardens, Slow Food Utah and guest presenters Pete Rasmussen and Kati Greaney of Sandhill Farms for a presentation on the sustainable agriculture movement in Cuba. This is a free event that is open to the public, but pre-registration is encouraged.
Sustainable agriculture in Cuba? Come join Utah organic farmer Pete Rasmussen and documentary photographer Kati Greaney as they share images and stories from their three month travel in Cuba. Find out how and why this Caribbean island nation, struggling from economic collapse and the US blockade, represents one of the best models for sustainable food system development in the world. From bio-intensive, urban gardens to rural cooperative farming programs, Cuba’s wealth of ingenuity, creativity and ecological literacy offers inspiration to anyone involved in local community building, food and nutrition education, and sustainable, equitable food system development.
Join us after the talk for a local food potluck, at one of the U of U's Edible Campus Garden, where you can meet the presenters and other like-minded individuals and talk sustainability.
