Volunteer at an organic, family farm on the outskirts of Havana to learn about the role of food in Cuba’s culture and economy.

Cuba imports most of its food. But a growing, organic farm movement is looking to decrease the island’s dependence on outside farming. To learn more about Cuba’s agricultural outlook and the people behind it, we’ll visit and volunteer at an organic family farm on the outskirts of Havana. 

Working alongside locals, you’ll learn the basics of planting, harvesting, weeding, watering, and managing a sustainable farming operation. Plus, we’ll see some of Cuba’s “forgotten” fruits like guanabana, caimito, rollinia, annona, and mamey colorado, which the farm is working to bring back into the mainstream.
