Join the May 2006 sustainable agriculture delegation to Cuba

  • Subject: [cg] Join the May 2006 sustainable agriculture delegation to Cuba

Please circulate this announcement widely -- thank you

Cuba offers us the world's most important example of organic farming and
sustainable agriculture on a large scale. It is an example that everyone
else can benefit from. By studying what Cubans have done, we can learn
important lessons for other countries. 

We are pleased to extend an invitation to participate in a research
delegation to study Cuba's remarkable advances in organic farming and
sustainable agriculture, this coming May 2006.

All trip details (dates, costs, application, legal info, etc.) are at:

The delegation and study tour will take place May 3-8, 2006, and is timed to
immediately precede three conferences on sustainable agriculture, organic
farming farming and agroecology, which will be held in Havana on May 8-13,
2006. Participants are invited to stay on for these conferences.

Participation in the delegation is open to people of all nationalities with
a professional interest in agriculture, and who wish to participate in a
group research and fact-finding delegation.

Farmers, farm and farmworker leaders, researchers, academics, students,
teachers, professors, journalists, NGO-, non-profit- and donor agency-
staff, policy makers, activists, and others may participate. We strongly
encourage funders to consider offering scholarships to their grantees to be
able to participate in this unique opportunity to learn lessons from the
Cuban experience that can help participants develop innovative approaches in
their home countries.

For non-Spanish speakers, we provide Spanish-English interpretation as part
of an overall package that includes trip/research leaders who are experts on
both sustainable agriculture and on Cuba. People who do not speak English or
Spanish should bring their own translator(s).
See full details (cost, application, on-line deposit, etc.) on the
delegation and how to sign up at:
