Episode Summary

Keeping It Green
Travel from Havana Cuba to Somerset England and experience green revolutions in model communities. With relatively little investment, communities are turning inner-city wastelands into productive agricultural areas for food and creating an organic gardening culture. Learn how one community reduced its carbon footprint with a solar powered school without reliance on modern gadgets. See how ordinary Cubans, after the Russians withdrew their economic support in the 1980s, had to grow food without fertilizers and pesticides. Despite not owning the land, people decided to set up makeshift gardens in order to feed the community. Next, we see the efforts of a British schoolboy adamantly fighting against the threat of global warming in a village in Somerset, England. The community uses sustainable means to have as little impact on the planet as possible.moreless
