#101 ECHO - Helping Underdeveloped Countries Grow Their Own Food
Ft. Myers, FL
ECHO (Educational Concern for Hunger Organization) uses the power of agriculture on a global scale to reduce hunger and improve lives in underdeveloped countries. ECHO provides students and overseas development workers with agricultural skills and resources to help those who are just one failed crop away from starvation. Viewers will not only learn about these garden heroes, but will see how to apply many of the skills shown in the simulated gardens to the similarly challenging conditions of their own home gardens. Avocados are a common fruit in these regions, so Chef Nathan cooks up a delicious chicken palliard featuring fresh guacamole.
