Stearns Farm CSA members who attended the Fall Harvest Festival on Saturday, Sept. 26 mingled over lunch, enjoyed music from Randy Batson and Matt Carlen, and elected sharer Chris Ludwig to the board of directors for a three year term.

Chris is a retired project manager, with a degree in landscape architecture. He also has a background in construction from 30 years working in Missouri’s largest Parks and Recreation department. During 2015, he became a regular volunteer at Stearns Farm, helping with planting and a variety of other projects.
