From Scratch Farms
We are homesteading 6 1/2 acres in the beautiful San Juan Islands. We’ve established a greenhouse, good-sized garden and fruit trees. We raise chickens, ducks, geese, goats and bees. We also have horses and American bulldogs, who eat us out of house and home. We try to make as much as we can of what we need ourselves.
A social club with pirate flair, the Cutthroats are a unique addition to life on San Juan Island. The Fourth of July is our flagship event, but watch for us anywhere a fun event is going on. Behind the scenes we are a community that believes in helping others; we help others directly and through support and assistance to other local nonprofits.
As Finance Manager of The Whale Museum, in addition to managing the complex finances of this diverse organization, she helps with the website, the store, and building repairs. More than a museum, TWM implements several significant educational and research programs dedicated to the stewardship of Salish Sea whales in the wild.
Elli is Executive Director of United Way SJC. She implemented the current website, which saves this vital local organization on its merchant service fees, as well as providing a stable, easy to update website. Her actual job is to manage the daily operations of the organization, and to help the board achieve their annual objectives. Since 1995, United Way of San Juan County’s mission has been to enhance the ability of local agencies to meet vital needs in our community. They have helped a generation of islanders to succeed, and continue through the grass-roots support of their contributors.
Beautiful fences, built timely and on budget. Whether it is a cedar fence, chain link, wire or electric fence or gate, Island Fence makes it happen. Not just a fence contractor, call about your fence, deck or outbuilding project. Elli is associated with this company.
As a TA at Skagit Valley College San Juan campus Elli helped students learn all levels of math, both during class and as a tutor. Students have said she helped make the subject real and accessible to them, especially when they had math anxiety or had to catch up several levels in a short period of time.
