Abstract
This teaching packet is intended to provide all the resources needed for an instructor, lecturer, or group organizer to facilitate a one to three-hour talk about contemporary agriculture in Cuba. The packet features a "Test Your Knowledge of Cuba" quiz, slides, text to accompany the slides, suggestions for leading exercises designed to inform others about agriculture in Cuba, and references for other materials. The packet is suitable for use in high school or college classrooms where students are interested in Cuba, agriculture, or sustainability, or for distribution among agricultural groups that want to learn about advances in organic farming elsewhere. Si, Se Puede! was compiled by three graduate students at the University of Minnesota who traveled to Cuba in March 1997 to study changes in Cuban agriculture, with support from the Institute for Social, Economic, and Ecological Sustainability.1
