Heidi Hunt, Assistant Editor
Heidi spends her day juggling time spent on reader e-mail, phone and letter questions with her other tasks, such as editing content for the magazine, updating sections of the website, and writing blog posts.
“My favorite part of the job has always been the interaction with our readers. It’s rewarding to be able to offer them the information they are looking for, whether it’s tracking down a 1970s article or finding the latest information on composting toilets. But more recently, I have found equal enjoyment from posting online article information on current environmental and agricultural issues.
Before joining the Mother Earth News staff, Heidi lived in northeast Washington in a log house on 80 acres of ponderosa pine and grassy meadows. The experiences of heating with wood, managing a quarter-mile gravel driveway, and keeping horses and cattle inside the fence line has helped Heidi in her interactions with readers.
Heidi recently moved into a historic neighborhood in Topeka, Kan. Her small yard is being transformed into an urban homestead, complete with gorgeous raised beds. You can follow her adventures on the Happy Homesteader blog.
