ECHO Farms Receives $25,000 Grant


ECHO Global Farm was presented with a $25,000 grant from the Cape Coral Community Foundation Global Center for Generosity (CCCF) and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation on Monday.

The foundation recognized ECHO Global Farm as a local leader into helping end world hunger. ECHO provides education around the world to help farmers cultivate a more sustainable form of agriculture.

The awards event held on Monday at the Westin Cape Coral Resort introduced the foundations and their goals to help with global issues. The Cape Coral Community Foundation is a charitable organization working with other groups to help strengthen communities and promote positive impact around the globe.

Danielle Flood, Public Relations Person for Echo, says she expects the money will go towards repairing damage from hurricane Irma and better preparing the farm for future storms.

“These resources will help us to better, not only use what we learn to share around the world, but be more prepared for a future storm,” Flood says.
