Feeding Commitment
How do you successfully grow an organization with a clear commitment to your employees, customers, and community? How has growing food changed these past few years, whether through movements, technology, or the pandemic? 

Join an open conversation with Rob Johnston Jr, Founder of Johnny’s Selected Seeds, who made the choice to turn his company over to his employees through an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) and by 2012 it became 100% employee-owned.
