Virtual Event | March 20 – April 16, 2021

The 9th annual San Juan Islands Agricultural Summit is going virtual. Designed as a space for inspiration, education, and community building, the 2021 Summit is focusing on building an equitable future for all involved in the San Juan County food system.

Summit Overview

In order to provide ample space for contemplation and in hopes of preventing any Zoom burnout, 2021 Summit events will be offered over a period of four weeks in March and April. While it certainly won’t be the same as gathering in person, this online format opens the door to hearing from speakers across the country, and provides the opportunity to stay engaged over multiple weeks!

Events will include discussion panels, multi-week study groups, a roundtable talk, keynote addresses, and a movie screening, covering a range of topics at the intersection of social justice and agriculture, including:

  • Local Indigenous Foodways
  • Equitable Local Food Access
  • White Supremacy Culture in Food Systems
  • History of Black Agrarianism
  • Reparations in Agriculture & Alternative Models
  • Equitable Farm Labor
  • Decolonizing Regenerative Agriculture

Engage with speakers from Viva Farms, Samish, Tulalip, Swinomish, and S’klallam tribal communities, Sylvanaqua Farms, Northwest Indian College, Black Futures Farm, Black Food Sovereignty Coalition, Yes Farm, Black Farmers Collective, and many more.
