Salt Spring Island Area Farm Plan Renewal
Upland was retained by the Salt Spring Island Agricultural Alliance to renew the 2008 Salt Spring Island Area Farm Plan. The overall objective is to further advance agricultural activities on SSI through to 2030, when environmental conditions related to climate change, along with population growth and economic challenges, will have altered the island in both predictable and unpredictable ways. The Salt Spring Island Area Farm Plan Renewal process included hosting two town hall events and working closely with the project’s Steering Committee. The Plan’s recommendations focus on ensuring long-term viability of farming and food production on Salt Spring Island, responding to the climate emergency through regenerative agricultural practices, and engaging the public and all levels of government on increasing local food production and protecting land for farming.
