ECHO is an international, Christian organization that exists to reduce hunger and improve lives through agricultural training and resources. Working through regional impact centers around the world, ECHO connects small-scale farmers, and those working to eliminate world hunger, with essential resources, and each other. These resources include a vast knowledge base of practical information, experienced technical support and an extensive seedbank focused on highly beneficial underutilized plants.
