Spotlight On: 2012 Westsound Small Farms Expo

This is a departure from my regular fare, but it's an event I'm looking forward to.

The Westsound Small Farms Expo premiered last spring to rave reviews. One of the many projects of our WSU Kitsap Extension's Small Farms Team, the Expo is meant to bring education, awareness and networking to our farming community, as well as our non-farming neighbors.

Diane Fish and Shannon Harkness spend hours upon hours planning these events and their work is much appreciated.

Here are some photos of the 2011 Small Farms Expo:

The 2012 West Sound Small Farms Expo will be at Olympic College in Bremerton on Saturday, February 11th. You can find more info on the WSU Kitsap Extension website.

You can also check out the WSU Kitsap Small Farms Team on Facebook here.

Offered seminar topics will include: Farm to Table 101, Energy Wise Agriculture, Water Wisdom for the Small Farmer, Conservation Tillage, and Diversifying Your Income Streams. Locally-produced lunch is included with admission and there will be a beer and wine tasting for an additional charge after the Expo! It's $55 for admission to the Expo, $12 for the Beer and Wine Exhibition.

Thanks again to WSU Kitsap Extension and Small Farms Team for putting on another exciting event!
