Vineyarders and visitors, undeterred by the weekend weather, enjoyed the annual Living Local Harvest Festival held at the M.V. Agricultural Society Hall in West Tisbury Saturday.

Presentations, demonstrations, talks, and exhibits focused on many aspects of Island life that included farming, fishing, prudent energy use, land conservation, and more.

Food vendors were plentiful. Visitors enjoyed hearty lunches and snacks, many using local ingredients.
