Getty is so easy and practical to learn from. She was one of my favorites at the Conference.
Participant, Healthy Together Now Conference
Getty’s energy and enthusiasm have made her a fixture at the last three Food Matters Manitoba Growing Local Conferences, hosting workshops on do-it-yourself fruit preparation, home preserving, and local food initiatives. Everyone from the advanced home economist to the beginner foodie find Getty’s workshops fun, relatable, and engaging thanks to her warm, animated personality and hands on approach to learning. Folks appreciate the practical knowledge Getty has to share, along with the skills and tangible steps they can easily use when they return home. Getty’s presence at Growing Local continues to be a draw for attendees from across the province!”
Kelsey Evans, Growing Local Workshop Coordinator
Getty has a way of connecting with you and tuning into what your information needs are. Her presentations are always interactive with her audience. It is amazing how she hears a person’s comment and responds with information directly related to the topic. She has a presentation outline, not just a ‘canned speech’.
