The Lionseed, located in beautiful Battle Lake, Minnesota, is home to our bookstore and learning commons. We host public and private events, offer academic skill-building services and a safe, welcoming space for creative, community-building ideas. Lionseed opened to the community on May 29, 2022. 

Tending Windmills, LLC (TWL) is our parent company focused on serving local communities through creative educational and community-building endeavors. TWL was founded by owner/executive director Kristin Sawyer Lyman in 2017.

We began by offering Barton Reading & Spelling tutoring for students with dyslexia and quickly expanded to include Executive Function Skills Coaching and Academic/Career Coaching services for neurodiverse K-12, post-secondary and graduate students. In 2020, Kristin was selected to become a PACER Parent Leader, which provided her with invaluable training to become a strong advocate and resource for students with special needs.
