I'm glad to learn what the money from the products I am already buying supports. There is no other way but sustainable. What the U.S. has done to the food production system is not sustainable and has lead to pollution that our current environmental laws are unable to combat, as well as the decline of the American farmer in favor of corporate farming. What we are left with is food that is unhealthy for us to consume, polluted land and water, and a system that thinks the only answer is more production. I applaud this education program and hope the knowledge gained may be implemented close to home.

What a neat way to spend a vacation! Being able to learn about growing organically and see the tropics would be a dream. I've been into "eating right" and feeding my family whole foods before it was even "cool".

Would love to travel to Costa Rica. I would love to see first hand how they grow sustainable and organic crops. My grandfather was a farmer in Iowa and I have many wonderful memories helping with the harvest and enjoying summer vacations on their farm!

Watching the Earth University video on Whole Foods website was really inspiring. I had no idea that this university existed and couldn't be happier to know that it does. It's wonderful to know that Whole Foods is supporting Earth University. I would love to be able to visit beautiful Costa Rica and see the necessary initiatives going on at Earth University.

I am from the southwestern area of Louisiana. In recent years there has been an exciting growth of interest in organic gardening. Quite a few of small farmers have converted to organic and our farmers markets are growing in number. My mother and I share a garden, where we try and grow enough vegetables to feed our families. I would love to get some pointers on how to make that work on a larger scale. Of course to enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica would be an amazing lagniappe.

My goal has always been to learn different environments/cultures and especially wildlife and to pass on the knowledge. It is invaluable. This would further my ambitions.
