ECHO, a leading advocate for sustainable agriculture and food security, will be hosting a week-long course on sustainable farming this summer at its North American Regional Impact Center. The course, Introduction to Tropical Agriculture Development, will take place from Monday, July 8 through Friday, July 12.

Workers, missionaries and volunteers interested in preparing for short to long-term involvement in international agriculture development are encouraged to participate. Topics and discussions will focus on improved food security and agricultural livelihoods for small-scale farmers in developing countries. Participants will be introduced to the complexities related to poverty and community development.

The course will cover a broad range of topics relevant to those starting in agricultural development in a tropical environment. The purpose is to expose attendees to several different ideas and concepts.

During the week, activities will include presentations, farm-based practicums, consultations with ECHO staff and opportunities for research in the ECHO Resource Library.
