See the sign above? My dad installed it this winter. He and my mom volunteer at ECHO during the winter months. My dad does maintenance, and my mom gardening. But my sister-in-law works there full-time.
ECHO animals are food, not friends.
Look! It's a Sabu! Yes Veggie Tale friends, this is a real sabu.
I love this and plan on implementing it in our backyard this summer. This is a "tippy tap". Appropriate technology! The Wisk container has a small hole in the lid, and is filled with water. There is a small bottle of soap also hanging from it. (Some tippy taps have bar soap hanging) Attached to the neck of the bottle is a string with a stick on the bottom. You step on the stick to get the water to come out. It is a hand-washing station! Proper hand washing is so important to keep disease down. I will have to "borrow" a detergent bottle as we use Charlie's Soap that doesn't come in bottles.
These are tiny Moringa trees. We love Moringa. Rosebud eats Moringa yogurt and Moringa Oatmeal. I drink Moringa tea for better breastmilk for her. What is Moringa? I had a post on it here.ECHO is that they simulate different growing conditions from around the world. This is a rooftop garden. Live in a shack have have zero yard? Grow your veggies in a tire, old bucket, milk jug, old carpeting (seriously...no soil, just carpet and rocks!), or whatever garbage you have. They have seeds that work for any condition!
ECHO are, they are there to educate people on how to fight world hunger. And they are mission minded. You can also support them financially and through prayer. Search them on Facebook and you can "Like" them and find out more also!
