The echo global farm has something for everyone. I live nearby and it has been a big hit for many visits. When younger, Our kids loved to see the animals, learn about miracle fruit, and pump a primary water well just because it was cool to see. As they got older they found the urban gardens of interest.

We had an awesome tour with Brian. It is amazing what an impact one person with a vision can make in the world. I like that this group is faith based. The diversity of ecosystems and appropriate plants was amazing. I learned a lot in the 2 hours of the tour. I will use the knowledge I learned in other... More

We missed the tour but were thoroughly pleased with the nursery. They have a wide variety of plants and vegetation, some I have not seen outside the Tropics. Kudos to the staff. If you are interested in some exotic and non native plants for your garden, this is the place to get them. Reasonable prices compared to what you will... More

The ECHO Global Farm Tour will give you a look at how agriculture and animal husbandry can be advanced in the developing world. It is a great window on the way education and training can be used to lift people out of poverty. You will be encouraged and inspired by this two-hour tour which includes a short film.

I grew up in the Bronx. That tells you how much I know about farming. This is an interdenominational group that promotes global food production. Nothing gets wasted and they work with and teach countrymen how to provide for their families. They encourage the countrymen to come up with their own solutions. A must see.

First of all, if you are looking for a farm experience for young children, this is not it. ECHO is an NGO committed to helping small farmers in poverty stricken areas worldwide use sustainable practices to support themselves and their families. There are two tours--one of the farm and another about how discarded items can be recycled to provide technology... More
