The future of Ganges and Fulford villages was the theme for Salt Spring Island’s first design ‘charrette’, an intensive workshop that brought together three teams of design professionals, including a core group of local architects, designers, planners, builders, and artists, and a support group of specialists and knowledgeable residents.  Their design challenge was to enhance and illustrate the current plans and policies for the island's villages in a time of climate change.

The resulting document and plans helped the community think out-side the box when considering how the villages should have been constructed, or might be in the future, as the impacts of climate change intensify.
