The need to bring agriculture into Cuba began with the fall of the Soviet Union and the loss of more than 50% of Cuba’s oil imports, much of its food and 85% of its trade economy. Transportation halted, people went hungry and the average Cuban lost 30 lbs. In reality, when all this began, it was a necessity. People had to start cultivating vegetables wherever they could, ‘a tour guide told a documentary crew filming in Cuba in 2004 to record how Cuba survived on far less oil than usual.
