Dimond Library to Show uplifting film on Cuba's urban gardens.
Can small-scale organic farming, localized community-based agriculture, actually feed large numbers of people? The answer is no further than a tropical island in the azure sea off the coast of Florida.
According Dale Allen Pfeiffer, author of "Eating Fossil Fuels," "Cuba has disproved the myth that organic agriculture cannot maintain a modern nation." Cuba is world-renowned for its urban gardens, its health and resiliency. For environmentalists and food policy activists in the East Bay, the normalization of relations with Cuba is a welcome event.
On Saturday, April 11th, 2:00 p.m. the Dimond Library hosts the award-winning film: "The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil." Come join the discussion facilitated by columnist Paul Rockwell.
