Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
USM backs compost work
Kennebec Journal - 4/22/2009.
By John Richardson – Greg Williams and Brett Richardson thought they would put their nearly completed graduate degrees to work in planning or policy careers. Instead, they're jumping into the waste disposal business. Williams and Richardson, students at the University of Southern Maine's Muskie School of Public Service, plan to turn food waste from Portland's restaurants and other institutions into organic compost for lawns and gardens.

Portland Press Herald - 4/22/2009.
