Survival Gardening, Cuban Style

You’ve heard that necessity is the mother of invention. Necessity also makes men do what reason will not. Such is the motivation behind survival. A prime example is gardening in Cuba.

When the collapse of the Soviet Union left Cuba without the support to which it had been accustomed, many people became resourceful out of necessity. Today, 70 percent of the vegetables and herbs grown on the island are organic. The urban gardens where they are raised are usually within walking distance of those who will consume them.

This is by no means a glorification of communism, but rather an illustration of what can be done in spite of adversity and oppression. Cubans have truly put survival gardening to work. Click here to read more about this.

If successful gardening can be done under such conditions as Cubans have faced, certainly we can implement simple, organic gardening methods in our own plots.
