Thank-you WA USDA RBDG!
We are pleased to announce that the Makers Guild is the beneficiary of a new USDA-funded Rural Business Development Grant (RBDG) that invests in a project to conduct three valuable research and development activities in San Juan County, 2020-2021.
The Guild team will be working with farm, food, arts, design, economic, manufacturing and technology businesses and organizations in the coming months.
We look forward to many fascinating conversations as we gather the information needed to capture a picture of current and future Maker enterprise needs and opportunities.
Digital multi-media recordings are a goal of the Guild's start-up activities and we anticipate filming and mapping over 25 Maker enterprises 2020-2021.

Nationwide, the Saturday after Thanksgiving is a celebration of local, small businesses and a great time for a Makers Stroll. The first Buy Local Saturday was held in Eastsound, on Orcas Island.
