For thousands of years, people have used selective breeding to get more of what we want from our food plants and animals: larger harvests, better taste, longer shelf-life. Today's genetic engineering techniques promise bigger results... and bring new worries. At this event, kids will learn from Tia Pinney, senior naturalist/educator at Drumlin Farm, about how the food they eat is engineered, and discuss whether the potential benefits of GMOs are worth the risks.

Wallace and his loyal dog, Gromit, set out to uncover the mystery behind the garden sabotage that plagues their village and threatens the annual giant-vegetable growing contest.
