Since 1994, Cuba has become a global leader in sustainable food and farming. This December, join a group of researchers and sustainable food system advocates to learn about agroecology and how it developed in the Cuban context.

The program will be hosted by Cuba's National Institute of Agricultural Sciences. Participants will have a unique opportunity to visit Cuban farms, meet farmers, researchers and community leaders, and experience Cuba's history, politics, nature and culture. The workshop is designed to give people a chance to explore, to learn, and to be inspired by Cuba's innovative agricultural practices and generous citizens.

More information about the researchers leading the tour, the program details, costs, and registration process is available at or by contacting Erin Nelson (
