How to Build a Low-Cost ECHO Asia Seed Germination Chamber Video Thumbnail

We have recently been receiving an increase in requests for audio and video training resources, especially for resources in languages other than English. As a community, we have the opportunity to share resources and increase the overall impact of what we produce. 

Here is a great example: This video produced by ECHOcommunity member Abram Bicksler, and generously underwritten by Hort CRSP and USAID, demonstrates how to build a low-cost seed germination chamber. The materials and techniques used in this video are readily available across Asia, but can be replicated nearly anywhere.

All resources published on ECHOcommunity are free to use and distribute with proper attribution. Do you have resources that would benefit community members? ECHOcommunity features A/V resources like the video above, as well as eBooks, articles and other resources contributed by members and member organizations.

To contribute materials or recommend links to sites with great resources please contact us.
