About Sandy Baker:
Sandy Baker began instructing and consulting on deer-proofing gardens in the 1990s. The opportunity arose naturally through her leadership role in an education-focused wildlife organization where she became sensitive to people’s need for state-of-the-art information.
Sandy’s professional (organization/board leaderships, presentation credentials) and personal (life-long organic gardener, past retail greenhouse/nursery owner) experience along with ongoing research opportunities keep her material fresh and current. She has co-authored several articles and authored the guidebook, “How to Deer-Proof Your Garden in Five Easy Steps.” In her capacity as consultant to the Humane Society of the United States, Sandy has presented deer-proofing seminars, educational programs and backyard consultations.
