About the presenter:
Dee Baptist enjoys dirt and cultivating and nurturing growing things – what better profession to exercise this love for the Earth than that of Farming. Although she demonstrates a number of competencies in administration, international relations, global development, and diplomacy; her love for the outdoors and the ability to manage her own time while contributing to her family and community is of paramount importance to her. Farming and agriculture provide that space where Dee feels at home expressing herself while connecting to the work that her ancestors have done for thousands of years.
Registration is required. Space is limited. COVID safety information to come.
