Delegation of Cuban farmers and NGOs to visit the US
Cuba-US Agroecology Network (CUSAN) is excited to be sponsoring a 5-person Cuban delegation to visit sustainable food models in Vermont and California from June 19th-29th. The delegation is made up of 3 staff members from the Cuban NGO Antonio Núñez Jiménez Foundation for Nature and Man and 2 permaculture farmers. The objectives of this trip are threefold: 1) to raise awareness in the United States about the advances made in agroecology and sustainable food systems in Cuba, 2) to share with the Cuban delegation examples of innovative production, distribution and consumer models for sustainable food systems, and 3) to inspire and motivate the people involved to continue their work and strengthen ties between Cuba and the U.S.
