Beverley Mitchell

Beverley is an Australian-born, Montreal-based writer and editor with a background in contemporary visual art, craft and design management. From a long line of green thumbs, she is now coming to terms with Canadian urban balcony gardening after nine years in the Australian tropics, where she had a jungle for a backyard. Beverley’s love of organic gardening led her to permaculture, which particularly influenced her with its concept of self-sustaining systems. She is interested in seeing this concept applied not only small-scale food production, but business models, consumer products and project development as well. When she's not writing, editing or cooking, you'll find her thrifting.
