Hello Salty people and those who are or may want to visit this magical Island, my name is Spence Pentland and I am the host of ‘The Island Talks’ podcast, all things Salt Spring Island (with a focus on wellness).
In this episode I get to connect with Gayle Baker, who is clearly VERY passionate about the well-being of this island. Her list of contributions is already remarkably long and as a newly elected representative on the SSI LCC, this list will continue to grow.
Founder of Ask Salt Spring, Dean of a college in California, author of small town history books, experience volunteering for various positions with CRD, Islands Trust, and the Chamber of Commerce, passionate about Island transportation, and much much more!
Visit Ask Salt Spring to read monthly reports written by Gayle, or show up in person (free coffee and her famous cookies) Fridays 11-1, Fridays in the SIMS (former Middle School) lobby.
Gayle’s latest book, Victoria, a Harbour Town History, is available in our local Salt Spring Books as well as Victoria, especially Munro’s and Bolen Books (It is also available online from Amazon)
