Salt Spring Island is a well known haven for artists, craftspeople and creative free thinkers. The island has had a colourful history since its days of being seasonal Salish hunting and fishing grounds. Settlers came from Hawaii, newly freed slaves from California, and more recently, dissenters opposed to the Vietnam war.
Something in the water here has made our little island of 10,000 people a remarkable community that simply glows. There is almost nothing you couldn`t find being hand made or grown by someone on the island. There are clubs and gatherings for almost every interest. People talk to each other here. I have lived in or visited most continents, but I couldn't imagine living anywhere else now, Salt Spring and the Gulf Island community have something special, come and visit and take a bit of its abundant soul home with you.
