ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Shawn Wright says he first learned to appreciate the power of worms a quarter of a century ago.
He had just moved to a run-down farm with run-down soil that could produce only run-down crops.
Today, that has all changed. Thanks primarily to the power of worms, the soil at the Wright farm is alive and well.
And now Wright is putting worm power to work at Central New Mexico Community College, where he is a member of the biology faculty.
