ECHO (Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization)
Hunger is an international problem, and the farm and nursery at ECHO (Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization) educate visitors on fighting world hunger. They are an inter-denominational non-profit Christian organization providing farmers in third world countries with information and seeds. A 90-minute tour of the ECHO farm reveals tropical food plants, a simulated rain forest, and more. The free tour is offered Tuesday, Friday and Saturday at 10a. After the tour, visit the Edible Landscape Nursery, where you can purchase the plants and seeds seen on the tour.
I have been to ECHO three times. The first was with my daughters class. The kids were SO amazed with each and every aspect of the place. They will lets you touch, feel and tastes plants. They will educate you while keeping you interested. My daughter loved the place so much that we went back last year with a group of 10 friends. They equally loved this place. This year my daughter went back a week ago and came home excited again. A group of college students were there for Spring Break while in FL. They lived and worked at the property and could only eat and survive on what was there. DO NOT MISS!
