More jobs may be coming to Livingston County. That's thanks to a Small Business Innovation Research Grant.

Worm Power -- which is an organic composting firm in Avon -- has been awarded $99,000 from the Department of Agriculture. The money will help the business develop an organic spray that coats seeds in a more environmentally-friendly way.

Currently, Worm Power employs eight people. The new line is expected to grow the business -- and add more jobs in the area.
