    The Bible based organization, ECHO, is feeding the hungry by training workers to teach sustainable farming practices based on climate and soil type. ECHO has one center in North America located in Ft. Myers, Florida, and others in Africa, Asia and Central America. These are headquarters for teaching missionaries and those who feel called to reduce poverty around the world, but that is not all they do. www.Echonet.org has all the answers.

    Beginning August 14th this year, ECHO begins a five-day course to cover the basics of community development and methods of agriculture information exchange.

    Participants will walk through the fundamentals of project management cycles. Specifically, planning, implementation, monitoring, finances and reporting. Using participatory teaching methods, experienced community development workers will introduce attendees to hands-on tools to survey local assets and needs. With feedback, participants will practice prioritizing issues as well as strategic responses. Eventually, the goal is for these practices to be community owned and self-sustaining.

    The $645 cost of this five-day course includes housing and meals, Sunday evening through Saturday morning. For payment and more information please email study@echonet.org
