About

Chia is a very nutritious mucilaginous seed, and an easy Micro-Green. This is another seed folks asked us for - for years - before we ever stocked it. We could never find a source which was certified organic and we didn't want to stock another expensive seed, but we special-ordered some for a customer and when we saw how lovely the seed was, we fell in love. Again. Chia is among the most glorious of all seeds, in appearance. It is a mottled black and white/off-white. Gorgeous! When we found a stable source of seed - from a supplier who IS certified organic, we decided to commit to it long-term.

We wonder how many people get into Micro-Greens as a result of having grown a "Chia Pet". Just curious.
