WSU San Juan Extension and the Ag Summit Steering Committee would like to send a HUGE thank you out to everyone who contributed to making 2024 SJI Ag Summit a success. Over 50 speakers shared their knowledge and experience with more than 200 attendees on topics ranging from agroforestry, biochar, and climate resiliency to soil health, traditional foodways, water rights, and much more.

The San Juan Islands Agriculture Summit is a valued annual event that provides a unique opportunity for the food and agricultural community from across the islands, and beyond, to gather. Designed as a space for inspiration, education, and comradery, the Ag Summit features keynotes, hands-on workshops, presentations by farmers and regional specialists, panel discussions, meals and social events.

Started in 2013 by representatives of Washington State University Extension, San Juan County Agricultural Resources Committee, San Juan Islands Agricultural Guild and San Juan Island Grange #966, this event has rotated between San Juan, Orcas and Lopez every year, except 2021 when we adapted to an online program. Each year the program is developed by a collaboration of local agricultural organizations with the guidance of a steering committee representing partners and stakeholders.

Funding for the Ag Summit comes from San Juan County WSU Extension, generous donors, business sponsors, in-kind contributions from partner organizations and ticket sales.
