Intro to Josh Kirschenbaum interview:
Well I don’t know about your house, but I certainly get MY fair share of seed catalogs after the holidays. I love everyone and have a hard time parting with them…ever! But honestly, with so many companies, what makes one different from the other? Today we’ll speak with Josh Krischenbaum, he’s Product Development Director at Territorial Seed Company. Now this is a guy who wears a lot of company hats. Some of his responsibilities include coordinating their yearly trials, helping to choose new varieties to offer in their catalog, and he’s also am the buyer for all of the green goods that Territorial Sells. In the midst of all those duties, somehow we managed to carve out a little time during this very busy season.
