Katie Elder | Meet the Team | Capricornia Catchments

Katie Elder

I was born & raised a bush kid & grew up with our people, our land & our animals etched into my heart. My background is in agronomy, horticulture & a support person for “peers for peers” & mental health awareness.

I have an interest in sustainable farm practices & recycling. But my greatest interest is in all things tea. I believe a cup of tea can start a conversation, it can celebrate or sympathise & it can heal the mind, body & soul. My hobbies are tea blending, gardening & spending time on the farm with my partner & my little dog & catching up friends & family.
