Organóponicos: Growing Fresh Food in Cuban Cities / 14ymedio

Organoponico_CYMIMA20160112_0004_1314ymedio bigger14ymedio, Havana, 12 January 2016 — Nestled in urban areas, organopónicos — urban farm plots — are committed to bringing root crops and other vegetables to the tables of those living farther from farmland. If the initiative initially offered cheaper prices than other agricultural markets, currently their directors call for “selling at prices that support the population, without affecting the need to make it worthwhile for the producers,” a goal that still hasn’t stopped working.
