Brandy Gallagher, ‘Place-making’ entrepreneur invites communities across Canada to ‘Go Village’ - Vancouver - Canada's Podcast
Brandy Gallagher (BSW, MA) is one of the original founders and developers of O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE, Shawnigan Lake (Vancouver Island) BC. She is one of the designing 'creatixes' dedicated to outreach projects (local and International), and the development of O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE as a demonstration/model sustainable village. Her sustainable land management planning and ecological design work has made her the main proponent behind the Canadian precedent setting rezoning which has allowed for the legal/political/community framework containing multi-use allowances for ecovillages and shared land projects across Canada. Born and raised in community her life work has been focused around the development of ‘Sustained Community’. She is also the developer of TOPIA: The Sustainable Learning Community Institute which operates onsite at OUR ECOVILLAGE. With a deep compassion for people and place Brandy works with other communities/projects to find their way through regulatory and legal processes which challenge the development of legitimate models of land use, alternative building, ownership and governance. The intention to have individuals & communities step aside from their rank & roles to enter into a more connected sense of community building is at the heart of her work. She provides these services through her business "Sustainable Community Solutions Consulting – SC2".
Her published work is a documentary titled "Creating TOPIA: The Journey of Developing a School of Sustainable Community Building." She is also featured in the movie "Escape From Suburbia" and the documentary "Peak Moments: Creating the Impossible". Look for the wide variety of articles written, and web based interviews documented in relation to her work.
