A unique attraction for Lee County, ECHO’s Global Farm
Tour is a fascinating 90-minute tour of the most creative working
farm you will ever experience. You will find demonstrations, plants
and techniques used by farmers and urban gardeners in developing
countries. Experience six settings of the Global Farm and taste
leaves and berries while you explore rain-forest habitats, visit
farm animals, stop at a simulated Haitian school, witness urban
gardening techniques that allow gardens on rooftops and learn all
about ECHO's mission of helping others learn to grow.
ECHO's Global Farm was created as a training center in tropical
agriculture. The Global Farm is divided into six areas including
tropical monsoon climates, urban gardens, semi-arid tropics,
tropical highlands, tropical rainforest and hot humid lowlands.
Each area is managed by one of ECHO's agricultural interns who
spends 12 months cultivating, harvesting, and researching numerous
crops, fruit trees and nutritious food plants. Each plot is also
used to produce seeds which are ultimately packaged and sent
overseas in order to be evaluated as a potential new food crop.
Showcased on the various plots are affordable and sustainable
farming techniques that also incorporate suitable animals and
appropriate technologies. Guided Tours of the Global Village are
enjoyed by tourists, local residents, colleges and church groups.
Tours are used to educate about agricultural issues in developing
countries, while highlighting unique solutions to growing food
under harsh conditions.
