Tawny is Metis with Red River ancestry, who works and lives on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kma’ki people. She is a steward of land and resources which guides her to embody her values. Tawny shares her written reflections on the Mind-Body-Soul connection in raising food and a family through the sharing of stories, food, gardening, spirituality + yoga practices, and nature exploration. It is her hope that through her lived experiences she is helping folks return home to themselves and their children through a (re)connection to the Earth.
Tawny is the proud mother of one 7 year old active and curious boy who inspires her to step up as a community leader for better land stewardship practices and spiritual transformation.
