Kat Hastings

Reforestation – Crew Leader

I am from Bracebridge, Ontario, a small community that is located just far enough north of Toronto that it has lots of quiet access to the wilderness. I was lucky enough to grow up in a place where access to the outdoors was never an issue and since then, I have always tried to remain in communities where nature is never more than steps away.

For the past several years, I have been living in Banff, Alberta, and spend the majority of my time living the ski bum lifestyle. I love snowboarding, listening to audiobooks, knitting, climbing, biking and spending time with the homies. When I’m not at the hill, I work part-time at the local library.

What Planters Can Expect From Me

This year, I am excited to build on all the learning and successes from last season. I am excited to build and lead a crew that is determined and motivated to put a lot of trees in the ground, but also that is supportive of one another and keen to have a boogie at the trucks at the end of a hard day. You can expect me to show up every morning organized with a plan for the day and in good spirits. I’m a pretty goofy and fun-loving person, but will also work incredibly hard to help planters achieve their goals.

What I Expect From Planters

I’m looking to add a few individuals to what is a goofy, hard-working and tight-knit crew. If you are interested in joining my crew you should be someone who is motivated to work hard but is also empathetic, easy-going and a team player.
