Terra Ash Bruxvoort

My mission is to inspire others to lead mindful lives that benefit the health and sustainability of our communities and earth.

I am a Des Moines based freelance conservation and agriculture writer and blogger. I also do nature writing at Modern Girl Walden. You can read more about my freelance writing services at ashbruxvoort.com.

I have worked in the conservation sector for two years doing fundraising and marketing. I grew up on a farm in Mitchellville, Iowa, where I was inspired by the earth and developed a desire to care for it. It wasn't until I reached college that I really began to understand what that meant and how it would change my life.

When I'm not writing you'll find me listening to music, at yoga class or traveling the world with nothing but a backpack. Writing about the environment is my biggest passion, but I also write about health, cycling, beer and nonprofit marketing. You can read my (sometimes) angry tweets about bike commuting @bikecommprobs.
