The People Behind 12 Tiny Things
Heidi Barr lives in Minnesota with her spouse and daughter where they tend a large organic vegetable garden, explore nature and do their best to live simply.
As a mother, partner, 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 help her stay grounded in reality.
Heidi works as a wellness coach, 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. Author of Prairie Grown and Woodland Manitou, you can learn more about her work at www.heidibarr.com.
Ellie is the director of youth and story development at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Minneapolis, teaches creative writing at the Minnesota Institute for Talented Youth, and previously taught theology at Cretin-Derham Hall High School.
Ellie’s work as an educator, writer and speaker has brought her to places like Kenya, El Salvador and Uruguay, but she currently lives in Minneapolis with her spouse and sons. She has a MFA in Writing from Sarah Lawrence College and a MA in Theology from Luther Seminary. Follow her at ellieroscher.com and @ellieroscher.
