Do you dream of being a writer?
Of sitting down with a cup of tea, an open notebook, filling up page after page.
Do you dream of telling your story; of touching someone’s heart with your words?
I absolutely know you can. It doesn’t matter what you’ve written (or not written) before.
What matters is right now: planting the seeds of words that will grow into a blog post or essay or book.
I’ve been where you are—unsure of what to write, of how to turn my vision and feeling into a coherent story. I know the tug of creativity, the pain of ignoring it, and the flourishing of paying attention and setting words to the page.
That’s why I created Harvesting Words: a writing workshop for farmers & gardeners.
Because I believe in the work you have inside you, and I believe in your ability to nurture it and help it grow.
You have stories inside you that want to sprout and bloom.
Harvesting Words, a writing workshop for farmers & gardeners, can help you grow them.

Hey, I'm Kate, and I invite you to join me in this 30-day workshop to plant the seeds of your story, cultivate your writing practice, and harvest words.
Since graduating with a degree in English and Environmental Studies, I've spent the last 10 years farming and writing.
I'm co-owner of Good Heart Farmstead, L3C, a certified organic farm in Worcester, Vermont, and creator of The Good Heart Life, a blog dedicated to helping you grow an organic life from soil to soul.
My writing has been published in Heirloom Gardener Magazine, Taproot Magazine, Local Banquet, The Burlington Free Press, and I'm a regular contributor to the High Mowing Organic Seeds blog.
I believe that creativity and growing food & flowers are inextricably linked, and that when you tend to the seeds inside you, you can grow a more joyful, lively, and creative life.
Harvesting Words is an online writing workshop for farmers & gardeners who want to cultivate a writing practice and grow the inspiration you get from soil and seeds into stories.
What you'll get:
An online classroom where I'll guide you through four sections:
Daily writing prompts:
Outside of the classroom, I'll challenge you to write 500 words a day, and send you daily writing prompts to keep you on track and motivated.
Community & Guidance:
You'll have the chance to comment and ask questions on each video lesson and interact with your fellow students. I'll be active in comment sections throughout the course, offering feedback and answering your questions along the way.
After the live workshop is over, you can return to these lessons anytime you need a boost of "compost" for your writing practice.
Plus, you can join any future live rounds again for free.
