Gord Ellis – Your Green Realtor • gordonellis@shaw.ca

I have just finished reading a book called “Leaving Microsoft to Change the World” This book has made me realize the extent of illiteracy in the world. I have, of course, always been aware of the lack of educational facilities in less developed countries, but did not appreciate the extent of it nor of the almost complete lack of progress in remedying the situation. John Wood, the author, had his epiphany while trekking in Nepal in 1999. He discovered empty libraries, a lack of schools, and a great hunger in the children and their parents for education as a way out of their cycles of extreme poverty. John went back to work briefly then resigned and started what later became “ROOM TO READ”, a non-profit organization with the goal of helping Nepal communities to build libraries and schools. Now, 10 years later, in 9 countries they have established 10,800 libraries with over 9 million books, built 1400+ schools and have funded over 10,400 girls to high school graduation. Do you think that having all these young people educated will help not only improve their individual lives but that of the entire world? “World Change starts with educated children.” QUESTION? What is more sustainable than education? For more information go to www.roomtoread.org . If you are interested in actually doing something here on Salt Spring call Gord at 250 537 1763.

Sun-filled, Gracious Brinkworthy Home

First time on the market, this 1285 sq. ft. 2 bedroom, 11/2 bath home will delight you. A local architect worked with the owner 25 years ago, at the time the park was being created, to extend her home. The result~ an open and flowing livingdining area, 3 sliding glass doors and large windows that bring the outside in. As an artist, it was imperative to have a studio, as well, off her living room. The owner oversaw the creation of her now mature garden, with watering system, boasting Rhodos, Azaleas, 100’s of Spring bulbs, fragrant Wall Flowers, 2 raised beds for veggies, a contorted Hazel, a pink Dogwood, an Ornamental Plum, a Magnolia, an apple tree, and a Sugar Maple that turns crimson in the fall. At the bottom of the garden is a hidden sanctuary created in stone, a perfect place to reflect….A precious spot, don’t delay! $199,000
