How we made the connection: Brother Rick Curry runs a bakery school for the handicapped in Belfast, Maine. He's offered Dyre bakery and marketing internships and an introduction to the head baker of the Culinary Institute of America. We also connected Dyre with Nancy G. Creamer, Ph.D., director of the Center for Environmental Farming Systems at North Carolina State University, who will help set up the garden. And chef Alice Waters has invited Dyre to visit the Edible Schoolyard, her organic garden in Berkeley, and her restaurant Chez Panisse.
