Monday, September 24, 2018 in at GrowNYC's Project Farmhouse. 

This year the Culinary Breeding Network is partnering with GrowNYC to bring the VARIETY SHOWCASE to Project Farmhouse in New York City. This event is an interactive mixer designed to build community between plant breeders, organic farmers and eaters where attendees have the unique experience to taste new and in-development vegetable, fruit & grain cultivars with the breeders that created them, share opinions, talk about needs & preferences and learn about the importance of organic plant breeding.

The event includes a series of tables featuring plant breeders with examples of their breeding work. The tables provide attendees with a tangible example of the bio-diversity being created with organic production and flavor in mind. Each breeder is paired with a chef that creates a dish that highlights the breeding project and samples are tasted by attendees.

The ticketed, indoor Variety Showcase NYC will be held at two times - DAYTIME (12:00 - 3:00 pm) and EVENING (5:00 - 8:00 pm). Please note there are different breeders and chefs at each time. There will also be interactive tables at a free, public outdoor space 2 blocks away at the Union Square Greenmarket from 11:00 am - 6:00 pm. 

Tickets are $100 and available HERE. {Make sure to choose your desired time from the drop down menu.}
