Green Genes: Seed Breeding for Organic Agriculture

A Science Cafe is a place for informal, jargon-free conversation between scientists and the general public. In our case, we’ll bring together SOSS plant breeding scientists and Madison’s community of gardeners, farmers, and curious eaters for a moderated Q&A about seeds, breeding, technology, and the future of our food system. Kids welcome!

Date: Monday, August 10, 2015
Time: Doors open 6:30 pm. Program 7:00 pm-8:00 pm. Mingling afterwards.
Cost: Free.
A cash bar with beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages will be available.

The Science Cafe will feature:

  • Organic plant breeding trivia
  • Quick, powerpoint-less conversation-starters from our panel of plant breeders
  • Large group Q&A
  • Mingling, conversation, and some laughs
