"When Cuba lost access to Soviet oil in the early 1900s, the country faced an immediate crisis -- feeding the population -- and an ongoing challenge: how to create a new low-energy society. Cuba transitioned from large, fossil-fuel intensive farming to small, less energy-intensive organic farm and urban gardens, and from a highly industrial society to a more sustainable one." -- Container.

What a fascinating story. I'am very moved by the agricultural movement in Cuba. Watch this movie! Be inspired! Grow some food, save some seed! Lets not be afraid of the future, time to build community!!

A good DVD showing us the changes we need to make with the challenges peak oil is going to produce. Worth the watch; it is a success story.
