Salt Spring Home & Garden Show – March 17th & 18th, 2017 A Great Success

Salt Spring Island's New Home & Garden Show last weekend was a resounding success in attracting attendance of 350 on Friday night and 950 on Saturday. Enthusiastically sponsored by Salt Spring's 325 member, Chamber of Commerce, over 40 businesses including specialized trades, financial services, retail, alternative energy, building supplies and community service and volunteer organizations had the opportunity to "show and tell" islanders and their friends about their products and services, all available locally. At a time when we are getting excited about new projects and freshening up our gardens and homes, there were many ideas on display to inspire a Spring-time theme of creativity indoors and out.
