On Wednesday July 29th I spoke with Dyan Dunsmoor-Farley and Steve Earle from the Gabriola Health & Wellness Collaborative (GHWC).
GHWC emerged from Sustainable Gabriola and is now a voluntary network of over 40 organizations and individuals working to improve health outcomes for Gabriolans throughout their lives. They strongly value collaboration to achieve common goals.
We had an engaging conversation about community wellness and sustainability. We discussed GHWC's bottom-up approach to address the community's needs as well as several grassroots initiatives that the Gabriola community has undertaken, such as GERTIE (Gabriola's Environmentally Responsible Trans-Island Express). We also spoke about the opportunities and challenges created by Gabriola Island's unique demographics.
GHWC recently published their 2020 Gabriola Health Report.
