April Monthly Meeting & Potluck – Thursday April 18, 2013

This month’s meeting features our Annual General Meeting as well as a presentation by PRI Sask member Michelle Hubbard on sustainable agriculture in Cuba.

As usual, doors will open at 6 pm and we’ll share a delicious potluck meal starting at about 6:30.

Our AGM will start at about 7:30 after we’ve cleaned up.  Short and sweet, this part of the agenda will take about half an hour.  We will share an overview of what we did this past year, a few of our plans for the future, our financial statement and elect our executive.

At about 8 pm Michelle will begin her presentation.

Sustainable Agriculture in Cuba – A Canadian Perspective

In February 2011, Michelle participated in a course on sustainable agriculture in Cuba organized by Canadian and Cuban organizations, including “The Urban Farmer” (run by permaculutralist Rob Berezan,  http://theurbanfarmer.ca/) and ACTAF (a national Cuban organization). They visited many farms,  including government-supported urban agricultural projects (organoponicos),  private, small-scale family farms, research farms, permaculture projects and government agricultural research stations around Western Cuba. Michelle will share some of her slides and experiences with us.

Everyone welcome.
