Six graduate students in the Department of Agriculture at Texas State University will travel to Costa Rica May 14-28. The trip, funded by U.S. Department of Agriculture grants, will provide an opportunity for Adriana Aleman, Erica Molina, Elise Valdes, Jessica Espinoza, David Vela and Shawntel Lopez to learn about sustainable farming practices in a country where those farming practices are prevalent.
