For over 30 years, ECHO has been helping thousands of development workers and organizations around the world to better access vital information and other resources needed to improve food production and security for small-scale farmers and gardeners. Located at ECHO's International Headquarters in North Fort Myers, ECHO’s 90-minute Global Farm Tour is a fascinating guided, walking tour of the most creative working farm you have ever experienced. You will find demonstrations, plants, and techniques useful to farmers and urban gardeners in developing countries and learn all about ECHO's mission of helping the poor help themselves. Experience seven settings of the Global Farm and taste tropical leaves while you explore rain-forest habitats, stop at a simulated rural school and witness urban gardening techniques that allow gardens on rooftops. You will also see some simple technologies and visit friendly farm animals: goats, chickens, ducks, tilapia, and rabbits. ECHO has one of the largest collections of tropical food plants in the United States. Note that self-guided tours are not permissible.
