The adage "No Farms, No Food" has very direct meaning in the San Juans where the once self sustaining island life has become largely dependent on imported food. The FARM Fund was created to help stengthen local food production. The Fund supports local farms to increase local food production and promote food security and self reliance. Hosted by the Ag Guild.
Extension office for San Juan County provides Farmer, Consumer, 4-H Youth, Ag Research, Master Gardener and Food Preservation activities that promote local food access.
