We will resume these indoor events in September. In the meantime, please join us at the 2018 Farmers Roundtable Series. Click the image below for more information.
Next Roundtable: Cover Crops, May 14
The Farmer Roundtable Series provides ongoing educational opportunities for local farmers to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and promote the viability of farming in our region. This set of discussions gives the local agricultural community the opportunity to share their experiences related to a given subject. In these workshops, we learn hands-on from Whatcom County farmers, land managers and other agricultural professionals in a field-based setting.
The 2018 Farmer Roundtable series is brought to you in collaboration with the Whatcom Conservation District as an extension of their popular Whatcom Farm Speaker Series.
Help us make this a successful series by providing your feedback below on future topics. You can also contact us direct at any time to offer additional feedback (360) 526-2381x105.
