Tours, Experiences, and Workshops for the whole family! 

Make time to join us for incredible experiences for all ages on the farm in 2022!

Here’s just a sampling of the fun activities for you to enjoy:

Tropical Tasting Lunch – Enjoy a farm-fresh lunch in our community garden, includes a brief seed bank behind the scenes tour. 

Edible Backyard Design Workshop – Do you want to incorporate edible plants and fruit trees into your home landscape? Explore examples of edible plants and fruit trees within landscape areas of ECHO while you learn principles of edible landscaping and start designing your own backyard ‘FoodScape’. To get the most out of the workshop, bring a rough diagram of your existing backyard or landscape area.  

Garden and Glass tour – Learn how to include fresh, tropical flavors in your homemade foods and beverages on an off-the-beaten path tour with an ECHO culinary guide. 

Saturday Farm Day – Spend the day at our 57-acre Global Farm and tour a tropical rainforest demonstration, the 300+ variety seed bank, take an educational tour of the fruit tree arboretum, or learn about alternative energies as they are demonstrated in the appropriate technology area! Kids of all ages can taste, touch, and experience their way around the world as they learn about world hunger and ways they can make an impact! 

We invite you to join us for this festival of fun and unique experiences!
