dick-anneDick Schneider retired to Port Townsend, Washington with his wife Anne, after a career in business and science. Dick founded RainCoast Farm, a non-commercial experimental farm in 2007 with the expressed purpose of evaluating known varieties of commercially relevant farm crops for their ability to thrive in the Pacific Northwest climate.

Most recently Dick has become interested in growing exotic tropical plants, particularly orchids, in the marine environment of the Pacific Northwest. With two greenhouses devoted to orchid cultivation and over 700 plants in the collection the orchids attract interested gardeners from around the area.

Dick has given talks to various community and university groups. Please email us to contact Dick about speaking to your group. Contact us at info@raincoastorchids.com
