Did You Know . . . ?
. . . that there are over 20,000 species of edible plants in the world, yet fewer than 20 species now provide 90% of our food. However, there are hundreds of less well-known edible plants from all around the world that are both delicious and nutritious.

St. Mary's Project Spotlight
Adam Peterson’s SMP draws from his experiences living and working in an isolated community in Caribbean Costa Rica. His project is intended not only as a creative piece, but as ethnographic writing that gives insight into another culture. The story itself is largely fictional; however, it illustrates a common experience of Jamaican immigrants in Costa Rica and the role in their lives of the nesting Leatherback, Hawksbill, Green, and Loggerhead turtles.
