ECHO Global Farm

Many months ago my sister bought my mom and I Groupons to ECHO Global Farm.  They were about to expire so we visited the farm and nursery today.  I hadn't been to the farm in years and it was nice to visit it again.  The very first time I visited was with my church youth group during 30 Hour Famine at least twelve years ago.

From ECHO's website: ECHO's Mission is to equip people with resources and skills to reduce hunger and improve the lives of the poor.

ECHO is very resourceful in their gardening techniques. Here are a few of their great ideas...


 Cinder blocks:


 Baby pool:

 Gutters and pallets:

 Filing cabinet:

 Keri and Keegan.

 Checking out the lettuce.

 We loaded up a cart to get our own gardens going. I bought strawberry, blueberry, and lemon balm plants...all things I can grow in containers!

 I'll leave you with some interesting statistics.

They're a pretty amazing organization. Check it out if you are ever in Southwest Florida!
