Heidi (Howard) Baker
General Manager, Aldermere Farm
“The longer I am here, the more stories I am told, the more I realize how much Aldermere means to my midcoast community. When I watch kids working with the animals, when I smell the ocean breeze through the barnyard and hear the bellowing of cows, I try to stop, take a deep breath, and quietly give thanks that Aldermere Farm is conserved and here to stay.”
Heidi supports the staff at Aldermere Farm and Erickson Fields, two agricultural-based preserves in Rockport, as they care for the land, grow food, and run youth agricultural programming and events to connect people to the natural world. She fosters deeper engagement between community members and the preserves, ensuring MCHT’s lands and programs continue to benefit the midcoast community for generations to come.
