From our organizers:

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 among plant breeders, seed growers, farmers, chefs, produce buyers, food journalists, consumers 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 ticketed, indoor Variety Showcase NYC will be held at two times – DAYTIME (12:00 – 3:00 pm) and EVENING (5:00 – 8:00 pm). 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.}
