He introduced the 1st 100% certified organic GMO free award winning condiment line in the U.S., UK & EU (Oregon Tilth/Soil Association/UK4) in 1997. As a activist in Cuba AG since 1996 he has worked to end the embargo and establish bi-lateral trade for the natural products industry. Over 20 years in Cuba, trust developed and MOUs secured with the best NGOs and founders of the Agroecological movement Cuba including dinner with the President. Delegations on agroecology, sustainable production, environment & community have been led to Cuba since 2002. Bahama OG was the only natural products company represented at the historic 2002 PABEXPO U.S. Cuba AG EXPO for 1st sales to Cuba by American companies since 1959. His work in Washington/Havana on the naturalization process since 1996 as a member of LAWG, WOLA & working bi-annually with Congressional leaders on all things Cuba made a difference.

Since 2003 delegates learned that the cooperative effort has results like dripping water that fills the pot. The “Peak Oil” group in 2003, NCSU and the NC Delegation, IX & X International Congress on Sustainable and Organic Agriculture; the South Africa/RULIVdelegation, IPC 11 Permaculture Convergence, Bolivia and Eco Pueblos are a few highlights. All delegations are different. No itineraries are the same. Travel with NEEM is truly a Cuban experience, enlightening and extraordinary?
WHAT WOULD YOU LEARN? That two peoples with one passion are separated only by distance and politics. That using Agroecological methods is possible on a country level in Cuba then it is also possible on a State level. Our community’s notion of local as best is strengthened and that the small local system works, less susceptible to problems, and Agroecologically sound.
