Joan Baxter

Joan Baxter is a Nova Scotian journalist, development researcher and science writer, communications specialist and an award-winning author, who has lived and worked in Africa for more than thirty years. Back home now to stay (she hopes!), she and her husband live near Tatamagouche, where they (try to) grow lots of vegetables and fruit, and hope to nurture a small woodlot back to healthy Acadian forest. Her book on African food was published in the spring, and her new one about the Pictou pulp mill will be published in October.
