You have the opportunity to take a ferry and see the unique details of Washington Island. With farmers markets every Saturdays from 9 am-noon, you are sure to have an interesting weekend. Washington Island started doing farmers markets about 6 years ago, and started with only two farms, and this past week they had 13 local vendors. Become a vendor and sell your crafts and goods, or visit the island and have a story to tell. Gathering Ground, a community-based organization, has many events and workshops for those who want to give back and get involved with the Earth. Enjoy the geography while also showing thanks. Alessandra Rolffs, Executive Director for Gathering Ground, talks about why visiting Washington Island is important.
