About Natalie Krueger

Natalie Krueger is a Certified Permaculture Designer /Educator, community organizer, earth steward, wholistic herbalist healer, wild plant forager and activist. She is guided by ongoing exploration within the nature of indigenous traditions and awareness of regenerative practices. Natalie lives, breathes, and eats permaculture principles in her off grid cob cabin in the woods that she built within a recycled pallet frame. Integrating and pursuing sacred relationships, she is dedicated to re-valuing her environment and creating new regenerative patterns for her lifestyle and those around her. From a young age Natalie developed a strong awareness in the elements. Her prime teachers in life have been the plant kin-dom, leading her to explore and deeply listen to patterns in many collaboratory structures as she embarks upon her earth pilgrimage. Much like the oak tree, Natalie is a generalist rather than a specialist and looks to see the larger ecological vision, along with engaging the re-connecting questions that will lead us to a thriving future.

While gathering and assimilating elemental rhythms in various parts of the world including Spain, Brazil, Costa Rica, India, and the USA, she has also built plenty of practical experience in Southern Ontario with edible landscaping, herbal medicines, wild edibles, perennial polyculture, market gardens, IPM, water harvesting, cold climate greenhouses, vermiculture, composting, shitake mushrooms, urban agriculture, natural building design, sustainable nutrition preparation, emotional topography, transition towns, community gardens, the work that reconnects, group facilitation, the art of play and honouring the land.

These are some of the organizations Natalie has worked with recently and played a leading role in:

Transition Guelph and Kitchener Waterloo, are two separate groups of concerned residents who share the vision of a more resilient community, one that can respond and adapt to changing climate, resource and economic conditions. Both groups are inspired by the model Rob Hopkins describes in The Transition Handbook. The aim is to encourage other residents to become involved, offer their own ideas and insights, and pitch in to create a sustainable future for ourselves, our children, and our children's children.
Groundwork, an organization dedicated to planting community gardens, growing and saving heirloom and open pollinated seed, guerilla forestry in the city, and educating the community about sustainable agriculture.

Two Rivers Community Garden, has developed a local growing space in the urban core to grow and harvest locally grown organic food for over 30 gardeners. This non fenced environment provides habitat for birds, pollinators and small mammals with naturalized areas as well as brings beauty to an area for low income families to share. Various public events are held to include neighbours into the community garden.

Warmer, is an eco-activist improv group that asks the questions; How does it feel to live in a time of global emergenc-y? , How do we live our lives, in the present moment ? , How can we work together with a systems understanding and have fun doing that? This group creatively explores contact dance, improv theatre, systems thinking, conversation cafes and collaborative practices in public and through our shared visions.

Waterloo Farmers and Crafters Market Co-op?This market was developed in the new city square to provide residents with an accessible market selling local, sustainably grown food and goods. The intention is to grow the local food shed and rebuild local distribution of fresh food as well as provide farmers the opportunity to earn a living wage. All farmers and crafters must produce what they are selling.
