ECHO Asia Agricultural Conference 1-4 October

ECHO is a long-time friend of the creation care movement, and one of the world leaders in providing technical assistance to small-scale farmers, particularly those working in a Christian development or missions context.

“Small Scale: Up Scale” is the theme for ECHO’s Asia Agricultural Conference, coming to Chiang Mai in October. If you’re in the region, and at all interested in agriculture, this event is for you. The cost appears reasonable, and scholarships are available (see link for more information).

Here’s part of the description; click here for full information and how to register:

How can we help small scale farming initiatives thrive in Asia? We can provide low-cost, innovative options that allow people to grow both their crops and their knowledge, expand their operations, and scale up!
Join us October 1-4 for 3-days of networking and opportunities to share ideas, technologies appropriate for small scale farmers, and lots of practical demonstrations at the new ECHO Asia Seed Bank & Small Farm Resource Center!
In addition to morning plenary speakers, we will conduct afternoon workshops at the ECHO Farm, an evening poster session, a seed exchange, followed by a 1-day site visit to one of many area best practice sites!
