Cathy Buckle is a Zimbabwean writer and blogger living in Marondera, Zimbabwe. She and her former husband bought “Stow Farm” in Marondera in 1990 and managed to make the farm productive and viable. However, in 2000 they lost their farm during the chaotic Land redistribution program to a group of “war veterans” who claimed rights to her land.
She trained as a social worker at the University of Zimbabwe and graduated in Social Work in 1979. She later trained as a Librarian and worked as the School Librarian and Head Counsellor at an Harare girls senior school.
