Green Cuba specialist Roberto Perez to tour UK

Roberto Perez is a Cuban permaculturist and environmental educator who will be on tour in the UK in September. Roberto worked to develop urban food growing in the Special Period to increase Cuba's food security, using permaculture techniques which seek sustainable solutions by following nature's patterns.

Cuba's experience is explained in the award-winning documentary film, The Power of Community, in which Roberto features, and now he will be visiting groups and food growing projects across the country, many of which are organising events for local people to hear him talk about the transition in Cuba.
