Maureen Hurd of Grand Rapids, Mich. and Ashley Darocha of Oxford, Mich. weed out an area to plant a crop at ECHO's Global Farm Wednesday, March 6, 2013 in North Fort Myers, Fla. The women are spending their spring break from Grand Valley State University to increase their hands on knowledge about agriculture. The 50-acre farm is recreating several climates around the world, including Haiti. Interns are learning the skills so that they can visit counties such as Haiti and teach the community how to become self-sufficient by growing.
