Welcome Barbara Yoder

I joined TWC in 2007 when our family moved to Ohio, and we began regularly attending events with our then three and five-year-old children. Over the past twelve years, I have experienced the grounds, buildings, and staff as essential support in raising my children with a love of Nature.

I have a long-term interest in religious studies and anthropology, and because I have personally experienced the power of nature to soothe and heal, I have a firm belief in the potential of the Foxfield Preserve to be a nurturing place for families considering natural burial.  My appreciation for Foxfield is also personal, as we buried a family member in the Forest area in 2010.

My professional career has covered projects in energy policy and research, government-led energy efficiency projects, and soil and water conservation. I am an active volunteer: teacher and leader for a homeschool co-op, a poll worker, a member of the Education Committee for The Wilderness Center, and costume manager for Ballet Wooster. I live in Wooster with my husband and two children.
