Catherine Lowther

I have lived in Central VT most of my life, and I have been a member of Hunger Mountain Co-op since 1989.  

I grew up in a family of gardeners and have been growing food organically all my life. I have degrees in Psychology and Consciousness Studies, and I have been in private practice doing psychotherapy, holistic health counseling and conflict resolution since 1985. I have taught at Goddard College since 1997, created programs in Sustainability and Climate Change, and helped bring the college to carbon neutrality in 2018. 

I have been a member of Al Gore’s Climate Reality Training Corps since 2017 and was a mentor in the first virtual Climate Reality Training that took place July 18 – 26, 2020 with 10,000 participants all over the world. I am on the board of the Sustainable Montpelier Coalition where I am working to help people grow more of their own food. 

I would bring my experiences growing food organically, helping people recover and maintain their health, reducing emissions to become carbon neutral, and my listening and conflict resolution skills to the council. I think that protecting the Co-op’s food sources by supporting local farmers will become increasingly important as we experience more of the impacts of climate change such as flooding, droughts, and fires that destroy crops.
