Southeast Alaska Farmer’s Summit
This gathering began in 2015 when commercial farmers and producers in Southeast Alaska decided to come together to learn from one another about producing local food in a challenging growing environment and how to bring these products to market. Since then, this summit has met every other year in a different community to reconnect, expand their knowledge, and share their experiences with a growing network of local produce growers and food producers. The 2017 summit took place in Haines, and the 2019 summit took place in Sitka.
We hope to continue to hold this meeting every other year with the long term goal of building up medium to large scale food production to strengthen food security in Southeast Alaska. Together, we will build a robust local food economy!
