NON-PROFIT CAUSE: “Robert Bateman Foundation – nurturing the next generation of conservationists.” BEVERAGE OF CHOICE: “Kombucha.” LOOKING AHEAD: “The pandemic had been super hard on Summerhill. We lost our biggest revenue areas of international tourism and catering weddings. But we adapted and learned so much! Looking forward to borders opening and to gatherings being allowed again. We are going to be stronger than ever.”
