Save the Date! San Juan Islands Agricultural Summit | March 16 & 17, 2018 | Lopez Island, WA
The Summit is an opportunity for the agricultural community to come together for inspiration, education and camaraderie. Offering a mix of hands-on half day workshops, social activities, shorter informative sessions and local food tasting opportunities, the Summit is a valued and important annual event in our community. It is often the only time various groups and farmers from throughout the islands have a chance to share information, and catch up on the previous year.
