Linda Woodrow from The Witches Kitchen, and her family spent a year in Havana, Cuba during the Special Period teaching permaculture, some years after the country’s economic collapse and during shortages of imported food and oil. It changed the Cuban’s lives forever, but not as badly as some may think.
Please join me in listening to an interview with Linda about her time in Cuba, and some of the lessons that can be learnt by people living in urban and suburban landscapes that are dependant on external resources for their survival.
There are many things we can learn from a country that has already experienced the sorts of issues we will also face during energy descent. I for one learnt a lot from today’s interview. A big thank you to Linda for sparing some of her time today.
