In 2016 ELP Fellow Erica Bloom participated in an agro-ecology tour in Cuba through the organization NEEM. Her travels connected her with organic farmers, researchers from across the Caribbean and Latin America, and students from around the world. In this presentation Erica will share what she learned about Cuba's organic agriculture movement and how changing U.S. and Cuba relations are affecting agricultural practices. She will also offer suggestions on places to visit if you're planning a trip to study farming in Cuba.
