Cuba is quickly becoming a world model for urban gardening. The urban gardening movement grew out of an immediate need to feed the nation’s citizens. Due to cost constraints, the produce HAD to be organic. Urban growers reclaimed abandoned lots and were unable to afford fertilizers and pesticides. The result has been highly nutritious produce that travels directly from garden to consumer. The system creates job, improves the quality of life, and can teach us all about the benefits of using cities to produce healthy food for the community.
