Inside Havana's Urban Farms

This video from the BBC looks inside some of the 200 urban farms that provide vegetables for Havana and the rest of Cuba.

"Havana has almost 200 urban allotments - known as organiponicos - providing four million tonnes of vegetables every year - helping the country to become 90% self-sufficient in fruit and vegetables."

The plots are located throughout the city, often on small plots in between huge buildings.
