Monty Don, one of the main presenters of BBC television’s Gardeners World, had nothing but praise for Cuba’s organiponicos.

The gardening-guru filmed in Havana for his new series ‘Around the World in 80 Gardens’, recently aired on BBC2.

Speaking about Cuba’s example for an online interview this month, he said: “Climate change will force us to be far more radical about our food production?.The organiponicos of Cuba are a positive, heartening solution.”
