A voyage to Cuba

Story by Dan Hust

CALLICOON CENTER — December 31, 2013 — When farmer and activist Dick 
Riseling first set foot in Cuba, he witnessed the changes brought about 
– good and bad – by the Fidel Castro administration.

“I wanted to see what a real revolution was like,” he recalled.
Nearly 50 years later, he returned to see yet another revolution – this 
one in agriculture.

“I knew I’d learn a lot,” he affirmed, “because they’re just so innovative.”

Riseling came home to Callicoon Center on December 2 after spending 
nearly two weeks in and around Havana, finding out how the people and 
the government are realizing a long-held dream of a self-sufficient, 
totally organic food supply.
