Kathy Rothermel

Organization: Kitchen Table Seed House

Location: Wolfe Island, Ontario Canada


Kathy is a gardener, seed producer and mother.

A life-long love of the country and a desire to share that experience with her family lead her to move to a farm on Wolfe Island.  Meeting local seed savers opened her world to the necessity of regional seed for the growth of a resilient and robust food system.

She is a founding member of the Kingston and Area Seed System Initiative (KASSI), a grower for the Ontario Vegetable Seed Producers Network and actively involved with the Eastern Canadian Organic Seed Growers Network.

Her belief in the importance of gathering together to share good food around the kitchen table has been a natural extension of her social and active family and community life.
