About the event

Lummi Island, near the San Juan archipelago off the coast of Washington, is a locavores fantasy land with abundant and diverse seaweed, along with salmon, crab, and spot prawn-rich waters. A pioneer of the sustainable, local food movement here is Riley Starks, a lifelong fisherman, and co-founder of Lummi Island Seafood, a salmon reef net fleet that operates on solar power; Patagonia Provisions purchases the bulk of Lummi Island salmon. He has recently started a seaweed farm and a non-profit, Salish Center for Sustainable Fishing, to support not just the salmon but all the other creatures of the Puget Sound that rely on them.  

Riley also started the renowned Willows Inn and sold it to chef Blaine Wetzel. He now owns and operates Nettles Farm Bed & Breakfast, where along with raising chickens and growing food, he finds truffles with the help of his truffle dog, Stella. He’s made this place not just a destination for great, food, but for hands-on culinary experiences and learning about stewardship of the natural world.
