Following the demise of Cuba’s sole supplier of oil, communities in Cuba pulled together, to find creative solutions to the problems of transportation, energy development, and adequate food supply. Cuba's highly mechanized industrial agricultural system, heavily dependent on oil based fertilizers and pesticides, was quickly transformed to one using organic gardening as city-dwellers planted urban gardens on every available plot.
This film is free and open to the public, as are the snacks and the convenient parking at the library’s Elk Street entrance.
