Here are some of the places where you’ll find my articles published:
Schaffhauser Bauer (http://www.schaffhauserbauer.ch) I assist the editor with layout and write articles for the Schaffhauser Bauer, a weekly inset into the daily Swiss paper, the Schaffhauser Nachrichten.
Country Guide, www.country–guide.ca. A Canadian farm business magazine. I’ve written several full feature articles about agriculture in Switzerland, Zambia and Italy, with more to come.
BauernZeitung, http://www.bauernzeitung.ch/startseite/ I regularly write a farm woman portrait for this weekly Swiss farm paper, such as the article about Margrit Gasser: http://www.bauernzeitung.ch/news-archiv/2015/freude-an-schoenen-dingen/
Country Roads – memoirs from rural Canada, an anthology. One of 34 authors, my story “I am a … farmer” talks about my identity crisis when we rented out our farm after a lifetime, it seemed, of being a farmer. I write of growing up on a family farm first in Switzerland, then on a pioneer farm in northern Canada. www.facebook.com/pages/Country-Roads-Memoirs-from-Rural-Canada/235509376524
Grainews (www.grainews.ca) I write feature articles with photos, on a wide range of topics. Two front page stories have covered a farmer who successfully grows malt barley year after year, and another farmer using alternative fertilizers. I’ve written about commercial farming and conservation farming in Zambia and many other topics.
Blog online: http://global-farmer.com For four years I wrote stories for the Western Producer, Canada, from wherever I was – Europe, Africa, Canada – from the vantage point of a farmer. I wrote about our experiences consulting with small scale farmers in Zambia; about the wonderful volunteers working to put together a Rotary Club dinner theatre in Westlock, AB; about a young woman who operates a family farm in Switzerland and grows wild flower seeds.
Hearts of the Country Magazine: (www.heartsmag.ca) – Hearts of the Country was a national publication celebrating Canadian farm and rural women as the backbone, strength, heart and soul of Rural Canada. I’ve written several stories for it – writing of my role models in Canada, Switzerland and Zambia.
Zambian Farmer, a Zambian farm magazine for the large commercial and small scale farmer. I’ve written several feature articles covering conservation farming in Zambia, and the wheat harvest in Canada.
Schweizer Bauer, a Swiss farm paper (www.schweizerbauer.ch) I wrote two ‘extras’ for the paper edition covering the wheat harvest in Canada and the farm situation in Zambia and hope to write more.
