About Karin

  A wonderfully eclectic career path, from:

  • pedaling and peddling ice cream for Dickie Dee

  • forestry work throughout northern Ontario (Foleyet, Chapleau, Kapuskasing, & Sault Ste. Marie)

  • teaching high school biology, science & math

  • breeding parrots, canaries, finches, sheep & dogs

  • writing magazine articles about birds, plants & gardening

  • authoring 2 books, Menopause Before 40 (2004), & Inspiring Births with a Midwife (2013) 

  • scientific writing & editing for the federal government

  I started gardening & growing plants and gardening while in elementary school. Leaving for College, I  boxed up my plants and sent them by Greyhound bus to Sault Ste. Marie, ON. After many years of city and small town living, I moved to a rural property. This allowed me to truly indulge in my passion for plants and gardening, and hone my expertise. 

I want to share this passion and expertise.
