Whether you like locally grown veggies, cattle, art craft, concerts or zucchini races there will be something for you at Salt Spring Island Fall Fair!
This year, the Fall Fair will take place on September 17 & 18 and will be the occasion to celebrate all things Salt Spring on the theme “Green and Growing“. You can already view the catalogue online by clicking on this link.
Like every year, the 2011 edition will take place at the Farmers’ Institute Grounds, located 351 Rainbow Road.
Don’t miss this great opportunity to discover the culture of our beautiful island!
This inspiring movie was watched by a full attendance, and was followed by an hour of Q&A!

On the South end of Salt Spring Island, the Tsawout First Nation reserve offers a loop trail that takes you along the rocky shore, dotted with small white beaches, past groves of Garry Oaks, and through a tall cedar forest. Once inhabited by Coast Salish peoples, this area is a special place – we are welcome to walk here, but please read the sign at the start of the trail and respect their wishes for its use.
Wishing you and your families a very happy New Year! May 2011 be peaceful and prosperous.
There’s been a lot in the news about BC’s new Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) and a lot of people are unsure how this may affect their Real Estate transactions.
The good news for real estate buyers is that most Salt Spring Island properties are not subject to the HST. HST is generally only payable if you are buying a spec home from a contractor or a lot from a developer, but not if the property is a re-sale.
