Travel Green

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.
