[SORRY IN ADVANCE FOR THE AUDIO QUALITY]

On the last few days of my trip to Costa Rica, I was in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica.

Populated by many European and American ex-pats, Puerto Viejo is a really cool surfing town on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.

As someone who is always looking for organic food, it was no exception when I was in Puerto Viejo. I was told that the farmers market each Saturday sells organic food, so I stopped by to take a look around. Read More »

EARTH University in Costa Rica – An Amazing Example of What Education Should Be

Written by Max Goldberg on February 23, 2012. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

The reason for my trip to Costa Rica was to come learn about a place called EARTH University.

EARTH University in Costa Rica is a 4-year accredited school where students come from all over the world to learn about sustainability and entrepreneurship. The goal is to have these students take these skills and knowledge back to their home countries after graduation in order to positively impact their communities.

What is important to know about EARTH University is that almost all of the students come from Latin America and Africa, 71% of the students come from rural impoverished areas, and 60% of the students receive full scholarships. Read More »
