Hannah Kincaid, Assistant Editor
Hannah grew up on a fifth-generation family farm outside of Lawrence, Kansas. Homeschooled, she spent much her childhood exploring the nearby Kansas prairie with her brothers. During that time, Hannah realized how important spending time in nature is to our happiness and well-being. She continues to hold a deep appreciation for the benefits that nature and wild plants can offer, both medicinally and nutritionally.
After receiving a Journalism degree from the University of Kansas, Hannah interned with her long-time favorite magazine, MOTHER EARTH NEWS, and was delighted to meet such a knowledgeable, compassionate group of people. After learning an exorbitant amount about food systems, GMOs and organic gardening (not to mention editing), Hannah said goodbye to her new friends in order to explore Europe. She and her father biked through County Clare, Ireland, and then Hannah explored seven European countries, soaking up the new tastes, smells and ideas. Refreshed and inspired, Hannah joined the MOTHER EARTH NEWS team as a permanent member in the fall of 2012. She focuses on the magazine's natural health content, its various social media channels, and the Country Lore print department. Hannah also serves as the magazine's in-house photographer.
Hannah is currently in the process of restoring a 100-year-old farmhouse on 2 acres, where she plans on cultivating a native medicinal plant garden. When she's not tearing up carpet or repainting walls, Hannah spends her spare time studying herbal medicine, practicing yoga, hanging out with her loved ones and cooking meals from scratch.
