My name is Hayley and I work as an editor for Permaculture Magazine.

Myself and my partner Sebastian, who also works for Permaculture Magazine, are visiting Cuba from the 11th December 2011 to the 8th January 2012.

I would like to write articles about permaculture in Cuba for the mag and it's associated website (www.permaculture.co.uk) and would like to visit as many permaculture projects, people and events as possible as we can, particularly, but not exclusively, in Havana.

Sebastian is currently also writing his university dissertation on 'Permaculture in Cuba' and would like to use the trip as an opportunity to gather source material for his dissertation do research for possible book projects.

We have both completed different permaculture courses and have been working with the magazine for several years. We are of course willing to exchange volunteer work for shelter/food but really we would just like to meet and talk with as many people as possible.

We appreciate anyone you may be able to put us in contact with! If you know of anybody, please send us a message.

Cubans are restricted from the internet so my guess is no.
