Whether you maintain a small vegetable garden in your backyard or are responsible for an 80-acre dairy farm, staff with the Whatcom Conservation District and Whatcom County Public Works encourage you to stop by the Small Farm Expo on Saturday, March 11.
The event is slated to feature a wide range of indoor and outdoor exhibitions centered on developments in agricultural technology, products and services. Participants will be able to take part in seminars about veterinary care and listen to a discussion about water quality issues facing the county. Representatives from a number of education-based agencies will also be on the scene to answer questions about the latest news impacting farmers.
The Small Farm Expo is free and will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds, located at 1775 Front Street in Lynden.
