A crash course in changing the world.
I selected Maria Rodriquez from Guatemala as my social innovation hero. She founded Byoearth, a project that trains farmers to raise worms. By introducing worms into biodegradable soil, you improve aeration and water retention and create an organic fertilizer.
I "liked" byoearth on Facebook, so I can follow the organization. I also sent Ms. Rodriguez a "friend request" and a message asking her about her inspiration for starting this organization.
