Regarding the hands on training in this issue ECHO Network Member Tim Nelson of Camino Global, Honduras writes:

Thank you so much for your visit here to Honduras this last week. It was truly great to have your help on our farm here at the seminary and for the ag workshop this last Monday and Tuesday. I was extremely pleased at the broad background of the small scale farmers at the event and very happy with their enthusiasm for learning. It was great seeing Eduardo share some of his knowledge with his fellow workshop attendees and to even offer his contact information to his fellow farmers to help them with some of his solutions. We look forward to Echo’s getting their site up in Spanish so we can begin to build a community of farmers here in Central America.
