Took the 2 hour farm tour, and only wish I had the time to take the tour that highlights "Appropriate Technologies". Not only did I get ideas that will help my NC vegetable garden, but I learned a lot about hunger worldwide and ongoing strategies to battle this. I was accompanied by my 97 yr old mother, and having made arrangements for them to provide their golf cart for her, we both enjoyed the tour. Having many friends who homeschool, I think this would be a great place for any families interested in gardening/agriculture/food needs worldwide. (I agree that it probably would be best for about 8-9 and older.) Those who are thinking of being missionaries in developing countries, or who support those already there will get a lot of great information also. For those just interested in backyard gardens, or gardening with less use of expensive and purchased chemical fertilizers or pest control- this is also for you! And- their nursery and gift shop is a fun place to browse and maybe buy heirloom seeds. So glad I went! If I lived locally, would be a volunteer for sure!

We took the two hour tour of the ECHO Global Farm. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We all learned a lot about sustainable farming as we toured the various environments studied by ECHO and learned about new nutritious food sources and the mission of ECHO. I would recommend this tour for anyone age 8 and all the way up to retired folks. There is a charge for the tour but not to buy goods, seeds, books in the gift shop.

Went with friends here and signed up for the 2 hour tour. Our guide Dennis was great. The tour is 2 hours but is a nice leisurely stroll. They have a 7 seater golf cart if you have walking difficulties. The gravel and dirt path isn't recommended for strollers etc. At every 10 feet or so Dennis talked about how they use technology and new ideas to test farming methods that can then be used at their sites in Africa and Asia, where their interns will go to put what they've learned to use. How do ducks and tilapia help each other to provide food for mankind? How do rabbits help provide food and more? Take the tour and find out. They also have a gift shop and nursery to take some of these plants home. I wish we could grow Moringa trees up north! (Find out about these at the Farm!)

It only takes an hour or so to enjoy this little wildlife rescue but it is great. Watch the Lions and tigers and bears eat and hang out in clean enclosures. Very friendly volunteers answer questions. Nice and shady with lots of places to sit down.

Hello there! I think you got us confused with another wonderful place :) It sounds like you mean Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary. They are indeed a wonderful little zoo!
