Caitlin Wilson

MOTHER EARTH NEWS

Caitlin Wilson is a gardener, textile artist, and editor who’s become firmly rooted in the Midwest after a childhood in Southern California and Vancouver, Canada. She graduated from the University of Nebraska in 2014 with a degree in English and minors in biology and math, topics that continue to fascinate her and crop up in unexpected ways. She also loves medieval history and is a member of a local recreation group, with which she practices archery, swordsmanship, and more. When she’s at home, she’s often fussing over her beloved English roses or trying to propagate unlikely tropical plants, in between reading voraciously and experimenting with new recipes.
