Heidi Barr lives near the St. Croix River Valley in Minnesota with her family, where they tend a large organic vegetable garden, explore nature and do their best to live simply.
As a mother, spouse, gardener, and writer, she is committed to cultivating ways of being that are life-giving and sustainable for people, communities and the planet. Hiking through forests and across prairies, wading in streams, digging in the soil and surrounding herself with natural wonder helps her stay grounded in reality.
Author of 12 Tiny Things, Cold Spring Hallelujah, What Comes Next, Woodland Manitou: To Be on Earth, and Prairie Grown: Stories and Recipes from a South Dakota Hillside, she is also the editor of The Mindful Kitchen, a wellness column in The Wayfarer Magazine and currently works as a group wellness coach at Noom, Inc. Every now and then she coordinates with yoga teachers and organic farms to offer retreat experiences and always makes really good scones.
Thank you for your presence here in this virtual space, and may your time on earth be one of well-being, peace and commitment to what you deem as enough for a beautiful life.
Land Acknowledgement: I reside on Dakota and Ojibwe land, land that European settlers colonized in the late 1800s. Today, there are 11 reservations within the state of Minnesota: four Dakota communities in the south and seven Ojibwe communities in the north.
