Heard it Through the Cukevine
Meet Kerstin Renner…
Kerstin Renner realized about halfway through Grade 12, as a foreign exchange student at Mount Baker Secondary School, that her passion for language, stories and writing had to become her career.
Completing a degree in journalism and communications, the Cranbrook resident worked at the local radio station and most recently as editor of the Kootenay News Advertiser with a stint at the Regional District of East Kootenay thrown in.
“Now I get to nurture my green(ing) thumb at Top Crop Garden, Farm & Pet and pass on the knowledge I am soaking up by writing about growing,” she said.
“My approach to gardening is driven by a passion for healthy and tasty food. If you’ve ever picked a ripe strawberry, still warm from the sun or made a salad with ingredients right from the garden, you know why it is worth the little bit of effort,” she said.
– Kerstin is joining e-KNOW‘s Writers’ Village where she will share her knowledge and love of gardening in her column Heard it Through the Cukevine.
