Exposure to Sustainable Agriculture for Chiang Mai International School Students

ECHO's main clientele is agriculture and community development workers seeking technical solutions to alleviate hunger and poverty.  However, you can never start too early in creating awareness regarding sustainable farming approaches.  This week, ECHO Asia and Partners Farm hosted a group of 45 8th grade science students from Chiang Mai International School for a morning of learning and hands on involvement.  They were able to learn the best way by getting their hands dirty related to basic soil science, appropriate technologies (e.g. treadle water pumps and biogas systems) and natural farming of pigs.
