Summit Overview

It’s All About the Carbon!

Join us for the 2024 San Juan Islands Agricultural Summit on Friday March 8 and Saturday March 9 at Camp Orkila on Orcas Island. This year we are looking through the lens of carbon to understand soil health, fertility, land stewardship, and climate resiliency.

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 camaraderie, the Ag Summit features a keynote, hands-on workshops, presentations by farmers and regional specialists, panel discussions, meals and social events.
