Local Farmers Perspective on Cuba

Sustainable Living Show, September 7, 2009

We started with Cliff Brown, a Temple Terrace horticulturist, talking about a project to rebuild the old bat tower in Temple Terrace.

Our next guest was my brother, Karl Butts. Karl took a trip to Cuba in 2000 with a group of American small farmers. He talked about Cuba’s transition to one of the most agriculturally sustainable in the world. Then the conversation took on the issues of organic verses conventional farming practices and some of the basics of growing vegetables.
