Seth Wispelwey and Tracy Howe Wispelwey
Tracy and Seth are both activists and theologians and love garden fresh food. Restoration Village Arts grew out of Tracy’s music and international touring ministry beginning in 2004. In 2010, Seth and Tracy re-imagined it into its present form, stewarding the network of artists and creative peacemakers that had formed over the years. They now live with their daughter in the town Seth grew up in. Tracy is a pastor and Seth directs a local nonprofit.
Tim and Dee are both passionate about transformative mission and social entrepreneurship. They founded People Not Profit in partnership with a community in El Salvador and now have started an urban CSA out of their own backyard. Dee is a nurse and Tim a licensed arborist. They love Austin tacos, their daughters and their community.
