Water Restrictions on Salt Spring Island

At our meeting this week, Shirley spoke about Fraser’s Thimble Farm on Salt Spring Island and the challenges they face due to water restrictions imposed there.

Fraser’s Thimble Farm is a mail order and retail nursery specializing in rare, unusual and native plants. An article in a local newspaper shows what they have done to conserve water over the years and the problems with permitting by the North Salt Spring Waterworks District. They have started a petition.
