The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil tells the story of how Cuba became a sustainable society when it lost its access to Soviet oil in the 1990s. Through community cooperation, conservation, permaculture and urban planning, Cubans learned how to reduce their use of fossil fuels and how to grow organic food on local farms and urban gardens. As the United States faces its own looming peak oil crisis, Cuba's triumph offers an inspiring vision for change.

Following the movie, join members of Oil Independent Berkeley for a discussion of peak oil and strategies for moving toward local, sustainable food production.
