Farm school

"Farm school", an article by Fred Bahnson in the Christian Century magazine, January 26,1010, p. 22-25, gives a picture of the Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization (ECHO) and its work 'sharing horticultural skills with the world' - the developing world, that is. ECHO works as a sort of agricultural extension service on behalf of third-world farmers, doing agricultural research on behalf of poor farmers, and sharing simple techniques that build on what they know and that they can put into practice.

Thanks for posting this John. ECHO's web site has lots of interesting information.
