Agriculture crisis in Puerto Rico

cafe3On December 6 PBS posted this video about a local Chef ensuring all of her food is locally grown! How amazing is that.  A place known for its Sugar Cane… that started Domino Sugar!.. is now trying to get back on the map as organic and growing.  I mention this now because there is a very important little fact in this video that otherwise I wouldn’t have known.  There was a cargo ship that sank carrying food to the island.  Why is this important?  Because as of yesterday all Floridians thought they were in heaven when thousands of cans of Cafe Bustelo washed ashore!  After I research some more I will write another post on how the government actively offers incentives to landowners to not cultivate their land and not produce food.
