9:30 Hybrid, Heirloom, GMOh My! – by

How about genetically engineered? Old fashioned, heirloom, organic, historic, true-to-type? Being concerned where food comes from and how seeds are sourced should not be a strenuous exercise in vocabulary. Relax and breathe easy, this seminar will show you how to cut through the buzz-word rhetoric. We’ll talk seed terms, types, suppliers, and get real about seed need-to-know.
