We are Salt Spring Island Farmland Trust
Connecting Community Farmland, Farmers, and Food
We believe that food sustainability is a priority. It nourishes our community socially, culturally and physically. We are committed to protecting agricultural land for future generations. The SSI Farmland Trust is part of a community of organizations intent on increasing food sustainability on Salt Spring Island. In the short term we are all working to put more local food on more Salt Spring Island tables so that everyone gets a taste of the delicious difference between imported food that travels thousands of kilometres compared with field-ripened fresh food that is grown right here at home.
