Anna Maria Desipris

Version 3Anna Maria is a farmer, beekeeper, teacher, healer, and community builder.

Born in the Sierra Mountains into a Greek and Sicilian family, Anna Maria has been guided by her heritage to become a modern day renaissance woman.

Her first connection to growing food, animal husbandry, and simple living came while spending many summers with her family on an island in the Cyclades of Greece. Watching her elders make things by hand and enjoy the fruits of their labor has shaped her intention to connect deeply to the earth and her community.

Anna Maria is many things, but above all a connector. She devotes her time to growing food, rescuing bees, educating youth, bellydance, plant medicine, and gathering her community for healing, intention setting, and retreats.
