STEVEN SAINT THOMAS earned a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Northwestern University and has been writing articles for newspapers and magazines for the past 25 years. He has worked as an award-winning daily newspaper reporter in Colorado and editor of six community newspapers in San Diego. His freelance work has been carried by Reuters News and has appeared in more than 60 publications, including Time Magazine and the Denver Post.
In 2013, Steven completed a Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) course with Becky Elder and Pikes Peak Permaculture and has never been quite the same! His passion is not only practicing permaculture on a homestead site near the Humboldt Bay but educating the public on sustainability issues and permaculture solutions.
