  • Food to Bank On - A three-year farmer incubation project that connects beginning sustainable farmers with business training, markets and mentorship, while providing farm-fresh product to food banks and shelters.
  • Collaboration and coordination - We work with the greater farming and food community and also facilitate meetings and host group efforts. Click to see a list of our core collaborators!
  • Whatcom Food Network - Many organizations are working toward improving the food system in Whatcom County, from farm to fork, to food disposal by building partnerships to create a more just and coordinated food system! We co-chair the planning committee.
  • Extensive communications, marketing and media about local farms, local food business and related food system issues or trends keep everyone in the local food loop!

Good Food IS Good Business!
