Abstract

From March 2 to March 7, 2020, I attended a faculty-led study abroad trip in partnership with EcoThropic to Baracoa, Cuba. Conversations with EcoThropic Director Britt Basel, Humboldt National Park Scientist and Community Outreach Officer Porfilio Lopez, English Teacher and urban farmer Yayai, and a family that runs the permaculture garden of El Eden, informed my field research. The past informs the future; so I begin by explaining Cuban history and how events trickled into current permaculture practices in conjunction with climate change impacts.
