As an energy healer and teacher of global consciousness, this green trip would be pure joy! Every day we make a multitude of choices, most small and some significant but all important. For who ever is given this opportunity may they be transformed and then choose to share what was received. Peace to all on this International Day of Peace.

My wife and son introduced me to organic food. Best thing that ever happened to me. This is a terrific school to teach the young and old healthy ways. My brother has been to Costa Rica and always raves about the country. He's a surfer and rode the waves there too !!! My damily gas been shopping at Whole Foods for a very long time. Food is always fresh and the employees very friendly.

Yes, Please enter me in this fantastic contest. I would love to win a trip to Costa Rica for our family. We have not had a vacation in over 15 years. Also, my Dad was a farmer in Kansas for 55 years and I would love to see the great methods of farming they are using in Costa Rica. Thank YOU so much and GOD Bless Everyone. Cecilia CECE

The opportunity to pass onto our youth from the Boys & Girls club of Pasadena the importance of taking care of mother earth and growing crops here in our garden is priceless. With limited access to our families in the food dessert here in Pasadena, we need to teach our youth how to produce organic within their communities, especially those who do not have access to fresh foods. Pasadena is a tale of two cities and working with those who need us most is something I am passionate about.

Huistory, the Mayan and Inca, civilizations have great influence on what we do today. Though the world has changed many of the older ways of living and growing food still remain. A visit would be a learning experience.

My wife and I have dreamed about going to Costa Rica for years. A trip to Costa Rica is at the top of both our Bucket Lists and would be a wonderful once in a lifetime experience. In addition, we constantly modify "standard" recipes to include more wholesome and organic ingredients. Any expansion of our options to create more nutritious meals would be most welcome.

Sweet! I love the fact that Earth University is cultivating a responsible, exciting and productive learning environment for students who wish to learn about sustainable farming in the tropics. As an educator, a trip like this would not only be a personal learning experience, but an expierence I can share with my students in class about the importance of maintaining sound environmental practices.

This past summer, I went to the Big Island of Hawaii and stayed at a wellness center with water catchment, solar collection, composting, and Aquaponic gardening. It was fascinating and so inspirational. I would learn so much usable information that I could utilize. Costa Rica is a favorite spot for me as well. Would love to return and learn.

As a family we are beginning to grow more of our food, aided by our 4 and 5 year old grandchildren. They are learning to love tomatoes off the vine, helping weed around the plants, give the plants "good food" with our compost from grass clippings and other organics. We would welcome the chance to learn from the ticos in C.R. how they are increasing their yields without pesticides and chemicals. I am taking espanol for the last four years so I would be able to chat in spanish with the kids! Grandma

My friend has told me wonderful things about Costa Rica. I would love to be the lucky winner. Love to learn the culture, food, and sustainable agriculture. This is an experience I can not gain from traveling on my own.

I think this would be a great opportunity to learn more about organic and sustainable living. I think that it is important to learn where your food comes from and what work goes into producing it. I would love to see all the hard work at EARTH University and help out in creating new life and new produce. I would then take what I learned there and bring it back to my humble garden. I am raising my daughter vegetarian as I am, and this opportunity would give us the chance to see first hand the importance of sustainibility.

For 26 years while my children were growing up I had a 90'x90' garden surrounded with fruit trees and rhubarb. I froze, canned and stored everything. I do so appreciate Whole Foods and the fresh organic produce. I have been very interested in visiting Costa Rica -- the farms, beaches and local culture. Thank you for the opportunity to enter this contest.
