Heidi Barr lives near the St. Croix River Valley in Minnesota with her husband and daughter 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. She loves putting words together to paint pictures of ideas, as well as walking with others as they explore what it means to live well on a finite planet. Hiking through forests and across prairies, wading in streams, digging in the soil and surrounding herself with natural wonder help her stay grounded in reality. Heidi spent ten years working as a corporate wellness coach and now coordinates with yoga teachers and organic farms to offer retreat experiences, writes books, and strives to give voice to stories that need to be told.
Find her online courses at We Are Wildness U, an online learning center for those who want to learn with Nature, about Nature and from Nature.
A regular contributor to enough., We Are Wildness and Wildfire Wellness, Heidi’s first book, Prairie Grown: Stories and Recipes from a South Dakota Hillside was published in June 2016.
Heidi also offers private wellness coaching on a limited basis – you can learn more about this offering, along with any upcoming retreats, at Wildfire Wellness.
