"We teach people about the environment and how they can eat better." -Fernando Fumes Monzote

Current Occupation: Farmer

Previous Occupation: Teacher / Professor

Fernando, a founding member of the "Cuba Organic Farming Association," sees agriculture as a means of promoting socialism. He grows more than 60 types of vegetables – all of which are organic -- on 18 acres of government-owned land and sells this produce to some of the top restaurants in Havana, including La Guarida.

Marcus' Takeaway: "He not only pays his workers more than the average government wage, he feeds them and houses some of them, too."
