Roberto Perez In Sheffield A still from the film showing community growing in Cuba
Visit and Talk from Roberto Perez from Cuba

Grow Sheffield together with Cuba Solidarity Campaign held a very successful event on 25th September that featured ROBERTO PEREZ permaculture star of the film ‘The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil’. Roberto spoke to a packed audience of over a hundred at the Friends Meeting House. Roberto gave valuable insight from his real experience of the transition to mass urban agriculture in Cuba during the oil restrictions of the 90s and what has happened more recently in Cuba. In a lively discussion after his talk many agreed that a lot of the learning from Cuba is relevant to our city in the era of climate change. Earlier in the day Roberto visited LEAF in North Sheffield and met some of the project’s volunteers. He also spent some time at Heeley City Farm and South Yorkshire Energy Centre,
