Eden Bioscience Folds

Xconomy Seattle — 

Eden Bioscience, the agricultural biotechnology company that developed a crop-boosting product called Messenger, said today it has decided to shut down for good and liquidate its assets. The Woodinville, WA-based company (NASDAQ: EDEN) sold its proprietary harpin protein technology in February 2007 to Pittsburgh-based Plant Health Care. Since then, Eden has tried to sustain itself by selling to homeowners and gardeners. It was unable to find another company to buy what was left. The company had just one full-time employee as of March, and two part-time employees, according to its annual report.

    Good. Glad they closed. Did security there. Managers were rude. The CEO seemed nice but the underlings beneath him were unprofessional. One day one of their large trucks started rolling down a hill and threatened to crash into a glass building. I ran as fast as I could, jumped up, climbed inside and figured out how to stop it just in time. Didn’t even get a thank you. The stuff they make used to spill on the floors. Guards had to walk through puddles of the stuff. We would go home with it all over our pants. Not fun.
