Organic Growers School offers an Agroecology trip to Cuba
Jan 7 – Jan 16 all-day

Asheville, NC. Organic Growers School is partnering with Food First and Altruvistas to offer
their second Cuba Agroecology Tour from January 7 through 16, 2020, with a focus on the
country’s intensive sustainable agriculture practices. The tour, to be comprised of growers,
community leaders, educators, and activists who are passionate about sustainable agriculture,
will begin in Havana and travel to destinations such as Pinar del Rio, Artemisa, and Matanzas.
The cost of the trip is $2,900 and will serve, in part, as a fundraiser for Organic Growers School
(OGS), a 501c3 non-profit organization. There are a limited number of partial scholarships for
farmers and food activists to attend. This tour and all registrants will not be affected by recent
political actions to restrict American travel to Cuba.
