I would love to win this trip to get hands on experience with the local farmers and the people who live on the land of Costa Rica. Growing up as a kid we had a large garden and orchards of apples and peaches.

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.

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.

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.

I would love to see Whole Foods start a store in my home town of Texarkana, Ar or Tx (we are a twin city) and people that have to have speciality foods especially gluten free. Thank you for considering the matter.

The produce at wholefoodsmarket is so full of flavor and nutrients and when I compared other grocers vegetables for example Kale it lasted only days where as at wholefoods the Kale was so full of deep green color and flavor and less bitter taste and it never came to my mind until a week later that I purchased Kale at another Big grocery chain that i became aware of the difference in texture, taste and flavor that I relize there is a difference!

The sustainable living aspect of this getaway sounds incredibly intriguing versus the run of the mill touristy vacations. This is a great opportunity to give back to the earth and really make a difference in how we live!
