I interviewed Pamela in the food garden of the Collingwood Childrens' Farm in Melbourne, Australia. Pamela was largely responsible for establishing this beautiful urban oasis back in the 1970s. In her time in Cuba she was involved in a number of urban agriculture projects and in this interview she reflects on these and aspects of the Cuban society which helped it through the harsh times following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Cuba suffered an artificial 'peak oil' as documented in the film The Power of Communty: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil (www.communitysolution.org/cuba)
