Bonnie has been living on Galiano for 26 years – she admits that before coming to Galiano she had never recycled! On arrival it soon became clear that there was garbage – and there was recycling – and never the twain shall meet. Meeting Nadia at recycling in those early days, she was quickly schooled in the proper way to recycle: clean and separated! Bonnie joined the GIRR board eight years ago and was a Director for two terms. After taking a break, she returned to the board as Board Chair three years ago when there was a big turn over in Directors, most of whom had dedicated many years to the GIRR Board. She notes that it is a pleasure and a privilege to continue the vision a small group of folks had so long ago and that so many dedicated people have worked on since to ensure its sustained success.
