More about this years Keynote Speaker – Sam Maupin:
Sam Maupin is an advocate for sustainable farming and gardening. He grew up on the Davis Farm in Belfair, working with his grandparents, Tom and Irene, who set a strong example for work ethic and community engagement. His mother, Marilyn hired him to work at the Brothers Greenhouses while he was in high school, and an interest in greenhouses led him to a horticulture degree from WSU. His education opened up opportunities to work at different commercial greenhouses in Western Washington, intern at a research station in Holland, and volunteer with his wife, Elise, at an educational farm in Costa Rica. A spiritual devotion to his ancestral homeland brought Sam and his wife back to Kitsap in 2012 where they had their son, Issac. Today Sam still volunteers with his family at the Davis Farm, raising livestock and produce. He is also available to the community at the Brothers Greenhouses, where he enjoys growing plants and helping gardeners make healthy landscape decisions. Sam’s experiences instructing karate and studying leadership help give him confidence as an advocate for farmers and gardeners everywhere.
