036 - A Stellar Neighborly Application

with host Linda Borghi and Dushan Batrovic

 

We are so glad that someone has simplified a way to get local food from neighborhood gardeners who have extra to sell.  This interview, with the creator of the Seed Voyage App, dives into how he is connecting local veggie growers and eaters through a simple online marketplace that gives everyone convenient access to the best homegrown produce in the community.  This tech, finance guy had begun to grow his own and realized how amazing it tasted and wanted access to varieties not available at the market. Seed Voyage was born! Spread the word! This app makes it really simple!
