Lopez Village Welcome Sign – The first of two Welcome signs, which we commissioned, has been installed on the corner of Fisherman Bay Road and Weeks Road.  We are still working on permission for the sign to be installed at Fisherman Bay Road and Lopez Road.  Stay tuned.  Hopefully it will be very soon!  Thank you to Mike Rust who is the artist/carver/installer.

The Lopez Island Farm Education program (LIFE), which consists of the Elementary Garden Enrichment, Middle School Garden Elective, HS Farm Class and the Farm/Garden to Cafeteria Program, is asking for favorite recipes from islanders to create a cookbook of homegrown dishes.  Forms can be picked up at Lopez Library, Blossom, Lopez Village Market, The Southend Grocery and at the Plaza Building in the Village, or you can email your recipes to  lopezrecipesforLIFE@gmail.com.  The goal is to collect 250 recipes.
