New Western Washington Trial Report
The Greenbank Farm Organic Seed Project: 2015 Western Washington Trial Report is the result of on-farm variety trials conducted in 2014 and 2015 by organic farmers in Western Washington with technical advising support from both OSA and Greenbank Farm. The report includes descriptions of trial goals, trial methods, and trial result data of six on-farm variety trials conducted on four participating farms in Western Washington in 2015. Trials included varieties of tomatoes, dry pole beans, popcorn, radicchio, chicory, snap peas, and bush yellow snap beans. Download the report here

“We know system diversity is one of the foundation stones to successful organic production and we have seen a demonstrated commitment from OSA to build that component of diversity relating to seed. I want to ensure my dollars to on-the-ground projects, a place where an emphasis to make an enduring difference is part of the mandate and where my dollars can be leveraged to build a stronger, healthier food system around the world.”
