Save the date to join the Culinary Breeding Network for the Variety Showcase in Portland, Oregon, on February 16, 2020. The event will be held at The Redd following the 10th Organic Seed Growers Conference.
This event is an interactive mixer designed to build community among between plant breeders, seed growers, farmers, chefs, consumers, produce buyers, food journalists, and more. Attendees have the unique experience to taste new and in-development vegetable, fruit, and grain cultivars; engage in conversation; share opinions; and take part in breaking down the walls between eaters and breeders. The Culinary Breeding Network’s Variety Showcase is a great opportunity for plant breeders, seed growers, and agricultural researchers to show their work, collect opinions, and use input to guide trajectories in their work. It is essentially a selection event in itself.
Tickets will be on sale closer to the event. Check the Culinary Breeding Network website for details as they get confirmed.
