       Plans are moving ahead to develop a worker cooperative commercial greenhouse in Springfield, Massachusetts.

       A site for it has been found, buyers lined up for the food that will be grown, and a direct public offering is being made to enlist investors for the project.  

               A public information session is taking in Springfield later today. 

       WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Fred Rose, Co-director of Wellspring Cooperative.
