The 5th Annual San Juan Islands Agricultural Summit will take place at beautiful Camp Orkila on February 10-12.

Please join us for 3 days of events, education and community building for farmers and those who love food and farming. We have been working hard all year to make this the best summit yet and are excited to share what we have put together.

Friday workshops include Permaculture Design for the Farm and Homestead, Seed Cleaning and Production and 5 other great workshops for only $25.

Friday night is the ever-popular Taste of the San Juans where restaurants and food vendors from all over the county showcase their favorite dishes with small “bites” so you have room to taste a bit of everything.  6:30-9:00. More details coming soon!

This year, Saturday will kick off with a panel discussion between highly regarded Agrarian Visionaries including  John Navazio, author of The Organic Seed Grower, seed breeder for Johnny’s Selected Seeds and former seed breeder for Organic Seed Alliance; Tom Thornton, Director and Founder of Cloud Mountain Farm and Education Center in Whatcom County; Anne Schwartz, Blue Heron Farm in Skagit County, founding member and past president of Tilth Producers of Washington; and Don Tipping, founder of Siskiyou Seeds, Seven Seeds Farm (A biodynamic farm in SE Oregon), and founder and president of the Family Farmer Seeds Cooperative.

Saturday Sessions include great offerings including Coast Salish Perspectives, Agricultural Resiliency in the Face of Climate Change, Farm Tools, Innovations in Local Cuisine and 12 other great sessions on 4 educational tracks. Keep a lookout in the coming weeks as we highlight some of the amazing agricultural voices and perspectives who will be sharing their wisdom at this year’s summit.
