Linda Geggie - Nominee

Linda_Geggie-photo.JPGLinda Geggie models the way, inspires a shared vision, challenges the process, enables others to act and encourages all of us through her leadership. After more than 20 years of sound analysis, hands-on practice, community engagement, not-for-profit innovation and policy entrepreneurship, Linda’s efforts have helped create a Regional Food and Health Action Plan, a Regional Food Charter, and a Draft Framework for the Regional Food Strategy as part of the CRD Regional Sustainability Strategy.

While these products are impressive, the real momentum Linda has helped create is in the network of relationships in our community and the increase in general food literacy, which means that citizens and elected decision makers not directly involved in growing or selling food still understand its critical importance and how they can support those who do provide it. We are fortunate to have Linda in our community.
