— A "start-up" sod farm could still come to Janesville, but the first phase of the project may take a little longer than first envisioned, and the number of employees is scaled back.

Darren Kennedy, of RecyGrow, says they've been working with Doug Venable from the City of Janesville and found a place in the industrial park near Avalon Road that fits their needs.

Kennedy says they must do a lot of marketing before they begin the operation because they need contracts before they can start growing the types of sod needed.

He says they expect to get the first phase of the business going by March of 2010. They would hire about 50 employees for that, and would hire more as the business expands. He says they're not ready to hire anyone yet.
