Building on last year's superb seed saving intensive, this spring, members of the Johnny's Selected Seeds plant breeding department, in collaboration with MAITC, will guide participants through the process by which your favorite vegetable varieties are developed. The Johnny’s breeding program uses traditional breeding methods, guiding the genetics of both self-pollinating and cross-pollinating crops by selecting and hand pollinating. Come learn more about where your hybrid and open-pollinated seeds come from and methods of developing your own new and exciting varieties, including hands-on pollination activities and exploration of curriculum connections at all levels.
