Wow! What a wonderful experience to be bestowed! What a great learning tool to reduce waste, and reduce our carbon footprint! What better way to learn about all these wonderful things but hands-on where we need to be!

This school sounds unbelievably cool! I'd love to visit with my soon to be college age daughter so she can learn first hand what I've been "preaching" about organics/

My daughter is studing abroad in San Jose,Costa Rica, and doing weekend trips through out the country. Would love to take her to Earth University to learn more about the Costa Rica business. She loves it there and I might not get her back.

Since I grew up in village I had opportunity to see at first hand and had chance to work in a farm in my early life. My children are born in North America, my husband was born and raised in city so they never had chance to experience this in their life. This would be a great opportunity for all of us to experience and help the farmers in Costa Rica. Our children will gain firsthand experience and I am sure they will carry it on for the rest of their lives. One of my son's passions is to become chef. What could be better chance than this to plant a seed in these young minds in early life? Thank you for considering our family. Mrs.Patel

Becoming healthy is a new priority. Whole Foods is the new leader on that front. We all need to learn about good health and making better choices so we can teach our children. Whole Foods is changing the world one family at a time. We are ready.

As a avid cooker I love anything to do with food and new experiences. A trip to Costa Rica would be an awesome adventure to embark on and learn and see all that the future holds for these amazing students who are on the forefront of the organic need for our society! I am there!

It would be wonderful for my family to experience the beauty of Costa Rica AND learn about sustainable food! We are making an effort to eat healthier. I would love for us to see how a country is doing it and possible bring those skills back to our home.

Awesome idea and what better way to teach our younger generation about organic farming. Would love to take my daughter who is a vegetarian and has inspired my whole family to eat better. Thanks.

This would be a fantastic study-abroad alternative. I use organic (fare traded when available) products for the "dirty dozen" items in particular. Would be great to visit Costa Rica and especially the Earth University, which is doing such an important contribution by educating the youngster.

I would like to transition into sustainable farming. This would be a great opportunity. I've had friends who have visited Costa Rica who have told me how beautiful the land is.

My husband and I would love to see and learn from Earth University. BUT I read the rules and what you are entering for is a trip for one person. I surely would not go without my husband.

Truly, this would be an incredible foray into the future. What we've done to our farmers, and indirectly to ourselves, as regards food production needs to change, and this project in this country will lead the way. Bravo! Would love to share in the experience.

I am recovering from a serious accident. I feel this fabulous trip would go far in helping me recover. Both the beauty of Costa Rica and the wealth in a learning experience for my damaged brain.
