This just didn't seem to make sense: we live in one of the BEST places to grow tomatoes, and this label claims mexico? So, it was time to do something about it and StartOrganic was formed. After plenty of research backing their theories of nutrient loss and overall lack of variety, Troy and Josh decided to help people build beautiful gardens in their yard and also perform the maintenance so that you don't necessarily have to break your back(or your bank) to get good old fashioned, real, non-gmo, organic, delicious, as-fresh-as-you-can-get produce right from your own backyard! Now that there is NO EXCUSE, help us localize the food sourceMeet the Business Owner: Josh L.Graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2004, Levine was San Francisco bound by 2006. Upon his arrival, he immediately found a job working for environmental products website GreenHome.com. After working as Director of Operations, he left to pursue a career in Marketing at CBS Interactive, a division of CBS. After 3 years of working for the corporate giant CBS is, Levine decided to leave the rat race and join Troy Smothermon on a journey to live every day doing a job with true meaning. StartOrganic was formed to help alleviate the societal stresses of shipping produce from all over the world when it truly isn't necessary. Levine now lives in San Jose helping to localize the food source one garden at a time.
