As an artist, farmer, musician, photographer, yogi, sailor, foodie, activist, explorer, chocolatier, teacher, and fermentation alchemist, to name a few – Cody wears many hats and is always in pursuit of more.

He is a curious being; one who values observing, learning, sharing, and facilitating a re-connection to the world of nature all around us – outside and within. Growing up gardening, hiking, paddling, skiing, and exploring the outdoors with his family, Cody’s understanding of the elements, patterns, and relationships of nature continues to evolve in his exploration and discovery of the wild in the heart of the city.

The ethics of Permaculture have helped guide his lifestyle towards an integration and interconnectedness with the social, economic and natural ecosystems around him. Through this work and play of earth-healing, he hopes others will also find a connection to healing within themselves as he has. 

Cody instructs on a variety of subjects throughout the Twin Cities with Minneapolis Community Ed, Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, & Big River Permaculture.

A forever student of plants, she is dedicated to learning and growing the medicines of her bioregion as a way to cultivate healing within her community.
