ECHO's Tropical Fruit Nursery

Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization was founded as Educational Concerns for Haiti Organization by businessman and philanthropist Richard Dugger as a method of providing much-needed agricultural training for aid workers and missionaries. Throughout its 31-year history, the interdenominational nonprofit has grown to house a nursery of tropical plants, a 7.5-acre farm, and a resource center of over 4,000 books and publications centered around providing sustainable food chains and livelihoods in poverty-stricken tropical areas. Celebrating its grand mission of training those who help the hungry and the poor, ECHO introduces visitors to rainforest climates and innovative urban gardening techniques in its Global Farm and preserves rare species while educating the public on complicated exchange rates at the seed bank. Each purchase made helps actualize this mission.

ECHO's volunteers promote food security in tropical and arid regions throughout the world with over 75,000 hours of work each year, and the hardworking 51-person staff of horticulturists, researchers, and program directors teach aid workers and the general public with a variety of workshops, internships, and guided tours on the verdant fields and well-tended nurseries of its bustling campus.
