The ecology stewardship team of St. Boniface Episcopal Church on Siesta Key has arranged a visit to the international headquarters of Echo Global Farms in North Fort Myers on Saturday, March 18.
Participants in the walking tour of the sustainable farm will learn how it impacts impoverished communities worldwide as they teach sustainable farming in developing countries, helping the poor to help themselves. The website is www.echonet.org. Teens and adults are welcome to participate in this educational experience. The admission is $10.50; coach transportation from St. Boniface is provided, with boarding beginning at 8:15 a.m. Participants are asked to bring their own lunch (coolers provided).
