We speak with Adrian Hearn, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Melbourne University. He has been going to Cuba every year of the last 16 and has recently received funding from the Australian Government (DFAT - COALAR) for a project looking at urban agricultural practices between Melbourne, Havana, and other cities in Latin America and China. He says Latin America has some of the best practices in the world in resilient and sustainable urban farming, and in Cuba during the stressful period following the fall of the Soviet Union, urban agriculture was necessary for survival.
Later in the show we talk with favour makers Ru Norbury and Conor O'Hanlon from Favours who offer *free* services to anyone who just needs a little help!
