"I had lots of misconceptions about it being a communist country and all that. It's true that they're not as privy as we are with inventions, food and so on. But they make up for it with incredible dancing."Or it could be the organic gardening the BBC presenter Monty Don argues, as the Castro Solidarity Campaign puts it:
Monty Don, one of the main presenters of BBC television’s Gardeners World, had nothing but praise for Cuba’s organiponicos.Incidentally Monty Don elsewhere demands that everyone start buying local produce in order to save the environment yet sees nothing wrong with flying himself around the world to look at plants!
The gardening-guru filmed in Havana for his new series ‘Around the World in 80 Gardens’, recently aired on BBC2.
Speaking about Cuba’s example for an online interview this month, he said: “Climate change will force us to be far more radical about our food production….The organiponicos of Cuba are a positive, heartening solution.”
