Work with Cheryl – Homesteading, Organic Gardening and Environmental Writer

Environmental writer and eco poet - Cheryl Magyar

Writing long-form articles, tutorials and thoughtful blog posts about organic gardening, homesteading, simple living and sustainability comes naturally to me.

As a freelance writer (who walks and writes the talk), I am reliably and independently producing likeable/shareable/intelligent content for you too. No matter whether your content is published on or offline.

Value-added content

Although I am the one writing your engaging content, the focus is always on you and your green business!

I’ve worked with a range of Paleo/Keto, gardening, green and eco-friendly businesses around the world, providing weekly content on a long-term basis. When you are in need of a knowledgeable writer, I am reliably here for you – come experience dependability at its best!

Who am I?

My name is Cheryl Magyar and I’m an experienced and passionate environmental writer with a degree in horticulture. I’m also 3x an expat, having lived about half of my life in the United States, dividing my time between Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Oregon and Seattle, WA.

I’ve also spent 8 years homesteading on the Great Plains of southeastern Hungary living in a cob home, followed by a year in the Scottish Borders, whilst living in a caravan, working on a large organic farm. Then we {my loving husband and now 13-year-old creatively brilliant daughter} traveled down to the alternative town of Totnes, in England, for another year-long stay…

In the end we decided that northern Romania was the best place for us to raise a family closer to nature and further from the constraints of consumerism – we have been here since October 2016.

Becoming an “international” citizen has only furthered my love for the environment, the plants and animals on it. Sometimes the contrasts are strikingly different, other times similarities overlap, but the overarching theme of our relocations and travels has been – “How can we best live sustainably on the land?”.

We are all on this planet together, and to make the biggest, everlasting sustainable changes, we have to gather and forage all the knowledge we can get our hands on.

As a writer, mentor, sustainability coach, homesteader and natural parent I help people discover the joys of living with less, all the while appreciating nature to the fullest.

As an independent environmental writer I have abundant experiences to draw on.

  • Homesteading – 15+ years of living without running water, farming, gardening organically and raising animals in Hungary and Romania.
  • Handcrafting – 25+ years of knitting, spinning, felting, weaving and sewing.
  • Sustainable Living – 20+ years of embracing an ecologically sound life.
  • Organic Gardening – 20+ years of growing an edible garden, and saving seeds, without the use of chemicals, B.S. in horticulture, 2000.
  • Foraging and Herbs – 20+ years of identifying (eating and using) plants from our surrounding landscape.
  • Gluten-free/Paleo Diet/Wellness Industry – 9+ years of a happy gluten-free diet, to be continued forever.
  • Minimalism and Simple Living – 15+ years of owning little, traveling with a backpack and living life to the fullest!

All of these topics overlap/intersect/intertwine.

They begin and end in various chapters of our lives.

My ecological passion and work as an environmental writer:

With a dedication to wildlife, native plants and preserving nature for future generations I write from the heart on all subjects that are listed above.

As a freelance writer my work is seen by millions of readers each month.

Each and every year, since 2016, I’ve contributed 200+ articles, tutorials (with photos) and posts to businesses looking to gain leverage, in an eco-friendly and environmentally aware habitat, with superior content.

Everything I write is unique, it is creative, and it is 100% yours to keep!

Freelance rates for your website, blog or print magazine:

I am beyond impressed with the quality of editing, writing and the level of communication I have experienced working with Cheryl. I have worked with a number of freelancers in the past, with medium to low results. After our first few encounters, Cheryl demonstrated to me that she was not only taking detailed notes of our communications and my concerns, but she was also able to understand the needs and vision of my blog, and was instrumental in taking the works of multiple people and translating their writing into to one common voice that resonates with our blog.
Cheryl’s writing ability is guaranteed to prove successful for anyone looking for help with their blog or content. However, what I enjoy most about working with Cheryl is her positive attitude, regardless of how unorganized I may have been and her ability to take words and transform them into a story worth reading. Cheryl is a genuinely nice person, who has the ability to add calmness to your chaos. ~ Ray, California
Cheryl is great to work with. She wrote perfect articles about the gluten-free topic before the agreed deadline. She has a great and fresh style, writes without any mistakes or typos and delivers plagiarism-free results. I would be happy to work with her in future! ~ Marko, Netherlands
Cheryl is such a skilled wordsmith! Takes some brief notes and turns it into a masterpiece! Already writing up your next task now! ~ Angela, Australia

“Spot on!” That’s what jumped to me as I received Cheryl’s work. She not only captured what I am asking for, she really delivered above and beyond my expectations. And it was all within deadline. Great job! I would definitely hire her again. ~ Travis, New York  

It’s been such a blast working with Cheryl. Her writing style is exactly what we were looking for. She always delivers upbeat and relatable content, it’s never one-note. Her Paleo and food knowledge is beneficial and adds an additional touch to her writing. Communication is consistently easy and straightforward. Another huge plus: Cheryl is always able to work with our schedule and her work arrives on time. Cheryl is a gem and we would definitely recommend her to anybody looking for a freelance writer! ~ Ashley N., California

If you are ever in need of stellar, creative content that is provided on a super-reliable basis, then hire Cheryl first – her experienced words will never let you down! ~ Rebecca, United Kingdom

Communicating with Cheryl is a breeze, as she can intuitively guess what I mean, even if I did not state something clearly enough. Cheryl is a thoughtful deep listener, and she has the ability to ask meaningful questions that allow me to feel more confident in my products and business. She is a wonderful asset for any green (and growing) business. ~ Thomas, Canada

Cheryl turned the project around exceptionally quickly and provided a well-written and engaging article. I’ll definitely be calling upon her services again in the future! ~ Mark, United Kingdom

This was one of the best articles I have received – it went straight into my Theme, was readable (SEO), had links to other articles.  If only other people sent me posts like this! ~ Lou, United Kingdom

Cheryl is a delight to work with! Her writing is outstanding, thorough, and always on time. Cheryl is reliable and her communication is great. One of the best writers we’ve ever worked with. We would hire Cheryl again in the future if ever needed without a doubt.

Ashley, California
