Restoring Our Seed Commons: The Need for Clarity about Intellectual Property Rights In 1978 CR Lawn founded Fedco Seeds. He served on its management teams for forty years until his retirement June 2018. In his plots, CR looked at thousands of varieties for possible inclusion in the Fedco catalog. He wrote most of the seed catalog’s vegetable variety descriptions and its essays on food issues and economic policy, weather and climate, and changes in the seed trade. He and his wife Eli Rogosa co-ordinated the NESARE-funded Restoring our Seed Project that pioneered in presenting the seed arts to growers in the Northeast prior to the advent of the Organic Seed Alliance conferences.
