In 2016 we received seed from Thumbs Heath who grows mostly purple crops in Central Idaho. In Ft. Collins, Colorado, Ann Pritchard stewarded seeds and returned them to Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance in 2017 as part of the Heritage Grain Trial Program. The seeds have been grown out and exchanged between us and trialists since 2016. In 2019 we received seed from Salt Spring Seeds out of British Columbia, Canada.
