I was born and raised on the south coast of BC. Salt Spring Island became home in 1981 after a visit to my brother Ross who has been here since 1978. He was managing Mansell Farm where I joined him. In 1984 my long time friend Robbyn Scott and I attended a mutual friends wedding and we rekindled our our relationship. In the spring of 1985 Robbyn moved to Salt Spring and joined Ross and I at Mansell Farm. We all put together a big market garden and sold it from our roadside stand as well as at the old school Saturday Market nothing like one of today.
Our daughter Metta was born in Aug of 1985 and now lives on the island with her two kids.
From the mid 1980's to 1996 I ran a small custom sawmill business on the island providing material for Artspring, Moby's Marine Pub, Creekside, Grace Point Square and many homes.
In 1996 Robbyn and I started Salt Spring Coffee which we still own and operate today. We moved our office and production to Richmond in 2010 but our flagship cafe and where it all started is still located in Ganges. Be sure to check it our. (URL HIDDEN)
I get to travel a lot with my work at Salt Spring Coffee but I must say one of my favorite places is right here on Salt Spring Island. The community is diverse and supportive with some of the best organic food on the planet being produced here.
I hope you enjoy Salt Spring Island and Daly Vista as much as we do.
