Lara is an amateur stingless beekeeper and mad chicken lady. She lives in Forster with her ever-tolerant husband, chickens, bees, and two dogs.
Growing up in Canada, she developed with a strong passion for inclusion in communities. This passion led her to volunteering in South Africa working with South African National Parks training people from the local communities to be English speaking nature guides in the parks.
She moved to Australia for love and continued this passion for inclusion here. Lara is a member of the Great Lakes Rural Australians for Refugees and Treasurer and Forster Region Co-coordinator for Home Among the Gum Trees NSW Inc. Home Among the Gum Trees NSW Inc provides holidays to people seeking asylum and their families in rural and coastal towns in NSW.
