Melinda's Resume
Friends of Morning Star Farm



Morning Star Farm serves as a base for Melinda Bateman. Her consulting work is called on locally in New Mexico as well as in other states. She's travelled the Southwest and the Pacific Northwest to learn about techniques in various zones.

Focusing on the Southwest and growing techniques such as drought resistant plants and crops, Melinda is able to guide her clients to making the right choices for their gardens.

Working abroad is also a specialty that Melinda Bateman has to offer. This past year, she spent time in Central America setting up a Biodynamic Farm in Guatemala.

Following this project, Melinda traveled to El Salvador to oversee what had been set up as a community project that needed assistance. By evaluating the situation, she was able to make suggestions to make the project work.
