Cyndi Hovey

Green Gifts Fair Stage and Demo Coordinator

Cyndi is excited to be joining Do It Green! Minnesota for her second year, bringing her talent and love of movement motivation, environmental consciousness, community outreach, and event planning. She is energized by creating spaces where people gather for entertaining, engaging and enjoyable events. Furthermore, she finds joy in connecting people with the spirit of exploration, allowing them to appreciate all that our earth has to offer and why its preservation should be second nature. Her involvement in environmental awareness is greatly fueled by her father’s commitment to social justice and ecological sustainability through his work with Care of Creation. Her spirit animal is a lion: strong as an individual, but much more powerful within community. She prides herself in being a year-long biker in Minnesota. If she’s not biking, she can be found gettin’ after it with November Project Minneapolis, practicing yoga, tending to her worm compost, reading a book in the sun or…eating (her life philosophy: food is good).
