Meet Gillian!

Our Newest Board Member and Trivia Enthusiast!

WHY DID YOU JOIN SUSTAINABLE BALLARD?
When I moved to Ballard last year, I was struck by the warmth and neighborliness of the community. My partner and I immediately felt right at home and knew we’d like to settle here for many years to come, so I wanted to start laying down some roots. I joined Sustainable Ballard to become more connected with people in the neighborhood and to be a more active member of it.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A MEMBER OF SUSTAINABLE BALLARD?
1 year

WHAT PROJECT(S) ARE YOU CURRENTLY INVOLVED IN?
Ballard Tool Library
Sustainable Ballard Board

WHAT WAS THE FIRST SB EVENT/PROGRAM YOU ATTENDED?
I first got acquainted with Sustainable Ballard through the tool library. I’m a longtime tinkerer and maker, and when I moved to Ballard I finally had space to work on some bigger projects. I found out about the tool library and was so excited to be able to access all kinds of tools and not have to buy things I’d only need to use once or twice. After joining, I started volunteering and focusing on improving the online inventory.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT BEING A MEMBER?
Getting more connected with the Ballard community, meeting people, and being able to give back.
