US: Online platform connects urban growers with local buyers

A new online platform called Seed Voyage is designed to connect backyard and other urban food growers with local buyers. The creator of Seed Voyage says it's designed to help growers make some income off an especially bountiful harvest while helping consumers obtain fresh, good-tasting produce, including uncommon varieties. Growers register online with their location and crop, and the service sends notifications to would-be buyers in the local area. Transactions are electronic.
