Johnny's Selected Seeds Tour
Join us for a pre-SOSS tour of Johnny's Selected Seeds in Winslow, ME! This is your chance to learn the ins and outs of a long established seed company. We will be touring seed production fields, talking with plant breeders, and seeing their warehouse and shipping facilities. Johnny's is only a few miles away from Colby College, where SOSS is being held this year.

SOSS 2016 officially begins with a catered dinner at Colby College. To set the tone and familiarize us, we have a panel of speakers from Maine who are involved in organic agriculture and seeds. We will be hearing from Will Bonsall of Scatterseed Project, Jim Gerritsen of Wood Prairie Farm, and Neil Lash of Medomak Valley High School's Heirloom Seed Project.
