    Island Grown Part 1 - Humans

    Island Grown Part 1 - Humans

    In this episode, I’m in conversation with Jen Demler-Lindsay and Becky Furnell who were born and raised here. We talk all about life growing up, the island culture, some of their favourite childhood and teen-hood memories, and now today as young women who’ve moved back here and all the challenges of buying and setting up their own homes ,with crazy busy lives, running their locavore catering company Ground Up, and investing in another business opportunity with their life partners to really dig their roots back into this community.
    Thanks to Jen and Becky! And to additional guests Nicholas Read and Nancy Heatherington-Peirce.

    Georgi's Workshop

    Georgi's Workshop

    Perhaps one of Gabriola’s more renowned workshops is Georgi Georgiev's.
    Why? Well, in this unassuming workshop it just so happened that Georgi designed and built the world’s fastest human powered vehicles (HPVs) -- aka fairing cloaked bicycles -- that dominated world contests in several categories for years. Some of those records from the 1990s and 2000s still hold.
    Georgi's company is Varna Research & Innovation.
