With 96 family garden plots occupying 3 of the 60 acres on the Farm, the gardens provide opportunities for Salt Spring residents to grow food for their own households with the aim to increase food sustainability on this island. The gardens are stewarded and worked by a lively and committed community of gardeners

The property is fenced and plumbed for irrigation. The Salt Spring Foundation, The Lions Club and the Shaw Family Trust provided generous funding to help launch the Shaw Family Community Gardens.

The Burgoyne Valley Community Farm has been continuously farmed since 1887. It is protected in perpetuity by the Salt Spring Island Farmland Trust Society for agricultural use.
