StartOrganic presented their innovative new business. Their mission is to “get as many people to grow as much real food at their own home as possible.” As such, they offer a number of services to help the homeowner create and maintain an organic (of course!)backyard garden. Beyond that they are working to create communities around local, fresh, produce, including holding events much like the Local Garden Shares sponsored by Transition Palo Alto.
We also learned about more new SEC rules discussed at the Slow Money Northern California regional meeting, this time around Title III of the JOBS Act for crowdfunding.
