The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived
Peak Oil

When: Saturday, June 13, 2009 (1pm—3pm)

Where: at Parkchester Public Library (1985 Westchester Ave, Bronx)

In order for the US and other countries to survive the Peak Oil period, countries will have to learn how to develop more sustainable practices in areas such as farming and agricultural. The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil tells a powerful story of how Cuba, in the 1990s, when lost with access to Soviet oil, redesigned their fossil –fuel dependent farming system to a more environmental and sustainable one. Community groups in the South Bronx and other urban neighborhoods, who are rethinking their food system, can learn valuable lessons from this film. Please join Turf for this special screening and discussion.
