ECHO – Helping Underdeveloped Countries Grow Their Own Food
ECHO (Educational Concern for Hunger Management) in Fort Myers, Florida is an organization that uses the power of agriculture on a global scale to reduce hunger and improve lives in underdeveloped countries. ECHO provides students and overseas development workers with agricultural skills and resources to help those who are just one failed crop away from starvation. In this episode we will not only learn about these garden heroes, but will see how to apply many of the skills shown in the simulated gardens to the similarly challenging conditions of our own home gardens.
