"All my life, I have been driven by one dream, one goal, one vision: To overthrow a farm labor system in this nation which treats farm workers as if they were not important human beings."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Some worms’ waste is area businessman’s gold
Kennebec Journal - 4/15/2012.
By Mechele Cooper – Belgrade Lakes: Jonathan Dyer enjoys introducing visitors to the slithering creatures in his basement. The lower half of his Main Street home is brightly lit with an array of bins, wooden boxes and tubs filled with, well, poop. It's not just any poop – it's from the red wiggler.
