Urban organic agriculture in the centre of Havana. All across the city the communities turned the bits of wasteland in small highly productive areas for food and medicines. The BBC made this beautiful documentary on this interesting, inspiring practice. The journalist gets lyrical, and rightly so… ‘To me this is a sort of a vision of heaven. Wonderful vegetables, grown organically. It looks beautiful. People all working together, from the community. Growing them, earning a living, eating them, caring about it. This is the key if you want to do it well, you have to mean it. ‘
Urban agriculture could provide food to the city dwelling population. This with a minimum of transportation, a maximum of sustainability and joy of experiencing the growth of vegetables.
