Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Fedco Seeds: The David to Monsanto’s Goliath
Green Fork - 3/24/2009.
Seed money for start-ups may be evaporating faster than California’s dwindling reservoirs, but this rocky economy is proving to be fertile ground for the seed industry. Cash-strapped consumers, scared by the specter of an empty fridge, are investing in the ultimate low-tech, high-yield start-up: the kitchen garden.

"I think that this'll definitely be a good place for people, not just from Wayne to come, but from the area," said Perkins, 17.
