A BBC report on the organic-garden revolution in Cuba:
The obvious order and beauty of the gardens belies all the anti-Cuban propaganda from those who would starve this island nation out of its sovereignty and into the arms of capitalism. It is, in fact, a study in sustainable culture. A person on the 100 Mile Diet could easily and happily do it in Cuba. The people there may not have a plethora of consumer goods to choose from, but they are healthy, they are far from starving, and they know their onions–literally–when it comes to self-sufficiency.
