Visit of Dra. Fabiola SANCHEZ (Cuba) – (Willem Van Cotthem / Willy GOETHALS)

On Sept. 27, 2011 I had the honour of receiving the visit of the Cuban Doctora Fabiola SANCHEZ.

We had an interesting exchange of ideas on different methods and technologies to produce fresh food in the drylands and in the cities (Urban Container Gardening / UCG).

Special attention was given to my “BOTTLE TOWER GARDENING” – method and to the construction of a “LIVING GREENHOUSE” with the Navajo willow.
