"It is beautiful to me to see something that is really working. Tomorrow I will have my own business so I won't depend on big companies. I will have my own ranch where I can produce for a lot of people and have direct contact with people. The women come to me and thank me for giving them good food. Some have never had organic vegetables and they notice the difference in flavor. I want to do what is good for the world and when I don't use pesticides I am not only helping my family, I am helping the whole world."
