Even though we are out of rainbow chard seed for the 2021 season, we want to point you toward another awesome source: Adaptive Seeds, our friendly bioregional seed neighbors to the west, are offering rainbow chard seed grown by first-time seed producer Brian Wood at Sauvie Island Organics in Portland, Oregon. Casey and Brian have been great friends for years, and Casey's been ON Brian, who is an amazing organic farmer, to add seed production to his farm...this chard was his first very successful attempt! Congratulations for jumping into seed geek-dom, Brian, and three cheers to Adaptive seeds for supporting bioregional seed production in Western Oregon!
