Kim West is a Master Gardener who has spent countless hours in her garden, finding it to be a place of deep joy, connection, and healing. Her love of the seasons, plants and nature is interwoven with her broader interests in writing and storytelling through art and poetry and wellness through nutrition, qi gong, forest walks, and mindfulness. Kim has been a university teacher and researcher for 20 years and is passionate about creating and sharing educational initiatives that interweave the pleasures of gardening with nutrition, the culinary arts, and mindfulness practices. She often can be found in her garden, meditating, doing qi gong, reading, or harvesting flowers, herbs, and vegetables for delicious meals and wholesome skin care remedies. Kim holds a PhD and BSc Hons. in Earth Sciences from Carleton University and the University of Saskatchewan, respectively. She is a culinary nutrition expert and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) facilitator and is undergoing training to become a certified qi gong instructor.
