Salt Spring Island Farmland Trust protects farmland, promotes agriculture and supports sustainable food production on Salt Spring Island, the largest and most developed of the Southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia.

Current Initiatives:

  • The Root, on Beddis Road in Ganges, currently under development, will provide a multi-function local food center to support increased food production, storage, processing and education. It will be a working model of regenerative agriculture in a changing climate.
  • The Burgoyne Valley Community Farm in the Fulford Valley, a 62-acre farm in the Agriculture Land Reserve, is home to four new entrant farmers, 78 family allotment gardens, and a half-acre food garden for charitable food programs serving the community.

American Friends of Canadian Conservation operates like a donor-advised fund – accepting gifts of cash, securities, and land from U.S. taxpayers like you who recommend grants to qualified partner organizations. American Friends is a U.S. 501(c)(3) publicly-supported charity; therefore your donation is tax deductible in the U.S.

Please read the terms for making grant recommendations to American Friends.
