Heather says, "As a mother, a woman and a person, my greatest passion lies in connecting people to the everyday ways that we can be more environmentally responsible and live simpler, more fulfilling lives.  With my own children, I am always seeking out new ways to enrich their playtime, nurture their minds and bodies and make them conscious of there place in the greater world. We enjoy gardening, cooking, chicken-keeping and, of course, reading."
