Maxwell and with Reid Creek flowing through it year round, this property has been active farmland for over 100 years. Gifted as a benefit for the community in conjunction with an Islands Trust rezoning bylaw and now under ownership of the SSI Farmland Trust Society, community gardens on this property are being prepared for islanders wanting to produce food.
