Event

San Juan Islands Agricultural Summit
The 2014 San Juan Islands Agricultural Summit offers a two-day program packed with information and inspiration, including a stellar line-up of keynote speakers and session leaders.

March 7, Hands-On Friday features three workshops, 1:30-5:00pm, covering biochar production, farm-to-school program implementation, and farmstead butchering.  

March 8, Summit Saturday features over 20 break-out sessions, a delicious local lunch cooked by chef Christina Orchid, a panel discussion with local San Juan County elected officials, a seed swap, and more.  For the detailed SUMMIT SCHEDULE, go to http://www.sjcarc.org/summit

Keynote speaker Steve Jones, grain breeder and director of the WSU NW Research and Extension Center, Mt. Vernon, will inspire and challenge us with examples of successful innovation on small farms and in local food systems in the NW.
 
Keynote speaker David Montgomery, University of Washington geologist and author of Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations, will explain the perfect parallel between the rise and fall of ancient civilizations and the state of their soils, bringing the message home and challenging all of us to restore our farmland soils.

Participating organizations include Organic Seed Alliance (OSA); Washington State University (WSU) NW Research and Extension Center; NW Agriculture Business Center (NABC); and the WA State Small Farms Team.
