What Every Gardener

Should Know

Cathy is a lifelong naturalist who has been gardening since she was a teenager.  

A graduate of Trent University in Environmental Science and currently studying Canadian and Indigenous Studies, Cathy’s passion is teaching about land stewardship in its many forms.  

Founder of Peterborough’s Ecology Park, which she directed for more than 20 years, Cathy has worked more recently for the City of Peterborough’s Parks and Forestry Division, designing and managing the many gardens in Millennium Park.  

Her favourite gardens are both beautiful and full of life, and over the years she has been a guest speaker for many horticultural groups, teaching the many facets of ecological gardening.

Cathy believes that biodiversity is the spice of life, and an important issue for all gardeners.
