Farm Tours on the San Juan Islands are a Joy!
Seeing where our food comes from and learning about the ingenous hard work our farmers put in is an immensely enriching learning (and yummy tasting) experience. This year the Makers Guild continues to co-host events managed by the SJI Conservation District and the SJI Agricultural Guild on Orcas, San Juan and Lopez Islands. Come celebrate the honest, direct relationship to the earth and its amazing bounty.
