Our 11 y.o. grandson would love to observe the techniques of organic farming, as taught at this University. He is enrolled in a gardening class in our municipal schools - elective programs. He is sincerely interested in growing his own food and learning to do so employing environmentally safe and healthy methods. His Grandmother and I are raising him and we can not provide for such an opportunity. If he is lucky enough to win, his Mimi or his Papa will be "stoked to accompany him".

I have always been supportive of and interested in sustainable organic farms, and most importantly in a university which prepares people including myself to become leaders in this field. Also, I have always wanted to visit Costa Rica and to see the natural beauty of the country. It has been my lifelong dream to start a organic farm. I am therefore very much interested in all aspects of this trip. I hope I am one of the finalists.

I would love to come and visit Costa Rica and Earth University. As a physician, healthy living is very important to me and my patient. I believe healthy living started with healthy diet. I would like to come and learn what I can bring to the U.S. from Earth University. Thanks.

I have long wanted to visit Costa Rica, and this particular trip would also be an inspiring learning experience in how one organization is providing Costa Ricans with training in sustainable agriculture and responsible business practices.

One trip into this store and you are hooked not only by their vast selection, but also by the knowledge of the employees. No matter what department you are in if you ask a question you get more then a answer, they explain what was asked but will refer you to another department to try some other item that will go wonderfully with it. Going there to shop is a adventure with a enormous selection to choose from. You come out of Whole Foods not fretting over the money you just spent,you come away waiting to go home and eat, your terrific buys. You never will want to go back to any other food store!

@Kelly You're right, sustainable and organic are two different things. Currently, Earth bananas are not certified organic. If you are interested in purchasing organic bananas at your community's Whole Foods Market, the best way to learn what your store options are is to contact them directly. I say this because our stores provide different products from store to store. I've included a link below to help identify the contact information for your store. http://wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/
