Catherine Winter

An avid permaculture gardener, herbalist, and aspiring ethnobotanist, Catherine Winter joins Inhabitat after spending the last decade working as a writer and editor for non-profit/eco organisations. She has contributed to both print and web-based media for clients across North America and Europe, and is slowly plodding her way through her first novel-writing attempt. Born and raised in Toronto, she has given up city life and moved to the wilds of rural Quebec, where she divides her time between writing for various clients and cultivating Farm the World—the organization she founded to educate and empower people to grow their own food in whatever space they have available. When she isn't writing or tending her food forest garden, Cate can be found nerding out over plants, wrestling with knitting projects, and befriending local forest creatures.
