Sustainable Agriculture and Urban Gardens Research Delegation to CUBA, November 12 – 21, 2010


Eco Cuba Exchange invites you to participate on a Global Exchange research delegation to study Sustainable Agriculture and Urban Gardens in Cuba.

Global Exchange organizes regular delegations of professors and practitioners of organic agriculture to Cuba, some of whom have subsequently developed ongoing exchange programs through their universities and communities. There is no lack of enthusiasm. It is only the U.S. embargo that interferes with the full development of these joint projects.

Meet with Cuban Architect/City Planner
