Know Your Islanders: Oak Knoll Farm, The Pope Greene Family on Wed. March 17, 7pm
March 17 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Sarah Pope returned home to San Juan Island in 2017 with her partner, Adam Greene, to raise their children and take over stewardship of the historic sheep farm, Oak Knoll Farm. Embarking on a steep but joyous learning curve to acquire skills like fence building and sheep midwifery along with knowledge of soil science, ruminant nutrition, and botanical dyeing, the family has also found nourishment in community connections. Adam is a firefighter/EMT, Sarah manages the new San Juan Islands Food Hub, and the whole family helps coordinate firewood donations through the Family Resource Center. Bring your questions about sheep, wool, local food, and opportunities for service to island neighbors.
