Summary Tri-City Herald investigates "a series of deaths, environmental damage and accidents that were traced back to one Columbia Basin farm -- the largest organic farm in the state." The stories reveal that the managers of the mint farm - the two brothers Mike and Gerald "Spud" Brown -- were ignoring pollution and state laws. Meanwhile, government "agencies failed to take decisive action to prevent deaths and pollution."
