Farm and Food Housing Survey: Share how the current housing shortage is affecting your San Juan County farm/ food-related business
If you own or manage a farm or food system business, we need your help to fill knowledge gaps and help local housing efforts better address the housing needs of local farm and food-businesses in the San Juan Islands.
Fourteen local food system and affordable housing organizations have formed a pro-active housing research initiative and invite you to take the survey.
Your survey responses help identify and quantify actual housing challenges and contribute to finding viable solutions that meet our local food system needs.
This project is funded in part through the USDA’s Regional Food System Partnership and the Northwest Agriculture Business Center.
The survey is an important information gathering tool providing data to the San Juan Islands Farm and Food System Housing Study.
The Study is being conducted with advice from the San Juan Islands Agriculture Guild, The County Agriculture Resource Committee, The Food System Team, WSU Extension, the San Juan Makers Guild, OPAL Community Land Trust, Lopez Community Land Trust, Lopez Affordable Housing, Orcas Community Resource Center, Lopez Family Resource Center, Sobel Family Resource Center, County Health, Housing and Community Services, Orcas Food Coop and One Island Sustainable Living.
