February 2-3, 2019: San Juan Juan Islands Agricultural Summit

February 21, 2019; 8:30-3:30 Guided Session: Developing Your Farm Food Safety Plan. FREE. After completing PSA Grower Training (February 19, 2019 in Anacortes, WA http://foodsafety.wsu.edu/training-programs/psagtandttt/) growers will develop a specific farm food safety plan and associated SOPs and records for their 2019 season. These are necessary if they are interested in getting a thirty party Good Agricultural Audit in the fall. Even growers who do not wish to get a GAP audit can benefit by participating in this course through gaining knowledge on best food safety practices for their operations.

What We Do

The Washington State University San Juan County Extension Ag Program supports a vibrant farm community and food system in San Juan County. We provide education on issues and topics important to agriculture in San Juan County.  We emphasize practical, research-based information from WSU and other educational institutions and authorities. Priorities are identified through listening sessions, surveys, program evaluations and direct contacts. We are conducting applied on-farm research programs in the areas of pasture management, crop variety evaluation and organic pest management.
