abstract
Tells the remarkable story of how the people of Havana have pulled themselves back from the brink of disaster following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Faced with food shortages and widespread hunger, city dwellers began growing food on rooftops, in school yards, and in front of office buildings. Now there are thousands of farms within the city limits, producing more than a million tons of food, about half of Havana's nutritional requirements. It is part of the biggest conversion to organic farming ever attempted and also led to the legalization of food markets and small businesses. Explores what the greening of Havana means to our own food security.
