Entrepreneurship is alive and well on Salt Spring Island

Ganges, Salt Spring Island
Salt Spring encourages a spirit of entrepreneurship.

Have you seen the evolution of Grace Point Square into an authentic artists locale?

What about the recreation of the former Gasoline Alley? Wow...every newly created space is painted its own signature row, now.

Adjacent to the building where my office is located, there is a Food Garden (including Brooke's vegetarian Fork to saw her on the Food Network's "Chuck and Danny's Road Trip"...find it on YouTube).

So many special places, showcasing the verve and daring of the business owners. a seasonal venue. Three cheers to these talented purveyors of eclectic charm!
