It would be an exciting opportunity to work along side of those already demonstrating their growing techniques. Learning how the process began and what expectations they have for the future. Being able to practice my Spanish in that environment would be outstanding.

I have an 8 year old daughter who has always been fascinated in different cultures and different ways of life. This would be an amazing way to experience it first hand! It would definitely be a learning adventure for us all! Through the eyes of an 8 year old!

this is so exciting, I'm the Queen of "green earth" and have helped many neighbors do the same. We buy organic products to encourage those farmers to continue in far away lands. Thank God for this amazing opportunity to visit you all. Thanks so much.

How exciting! I'd love to have the opportunity to pull up my sleeves and help out--while learning how to grow things sustainably. Someday I plant to have a back yard and grow my own produce.

As a teacher I think this would be a wonderful and fascinating opportunity to enrich my classroom by learning about organic farm life from another country. I have always wanted to travel and visit this beautiful exotic land. Whole Foods in Austin, Texas has always been one of my favorite natural stores to shop at and visit.

I just discovered the healing power of nature through eating raw organic foods. Whole Food Market has helped me so much on this journey! I couldn't have done it without their high quality produce and organic brands!!! I will continue to learn more about this new way of living and would love to go on this trip to help me do that!

I would love an opportunity to be immersed in this environment and learn more. I already believe in conscious eating, organic growing and would love to learn more about sustainable gardening... would be valuable to bring home, share and pass on to community and young minds.

Visited that area about 17 years ago. What a neat place. Friendly people, excellent shool, and great locally grown food. Would be neat to visit again to see how the area has developed. Spent three days doing studies about native plants and animals at EARTH.

I studied agroforestry in college and believe in the power of this practice to support biodiversity levels in conjunction with food production.

Having a small pea-patch, I know the importance of nurturing your body with fruit and vegetables you've grown from the soil. It soothes the soul when you tend your garden and it would be a gift to see young students preparing the soil for their community. I wish we had a community garden at my small medical clinic but I know there are some pea-patch plots in our neighborhood that are tended.
