Oct 11 FFE Eco-Speaker Chris Wimmer IN-PERSON AT TAU CENTER: “Farm. Food. Environment. Social Impact!”

Farm. Food. Environment. Social Impact! – Chris Wimmer of Known & Grown STL to discuss the impact of what we choose to eat.

Please join the Franciscan Sisters and Chris Wimmer of Known & Grown STL on Tuesday, October 11, 2022 at 6:30 in the evening via Zoom for the Franciscans For Earth Eco-Series speaker presentation entitled “Farm. Food. Environment. Social Impact!”

Chris Wimmer joined the Missouri Coalition for the Environment’s Food & Farm team as the Known & Grown Farm Specialist in July of 2019. Chris was born and raised in St. Louis, MO, and always dreamed of becoming a farmer. He received his BS in Agronomy from University of Missouri Columbia. Eager to combine his passion for environmental stewardship and growing food Chris founded The Farm at Kraut Run in 1995. The farm produced organic vegetables and meat sold locally through a Community Supported Agriculture program, farmers markets, and local restaurants. The farm’s hands-on educational field trips were designed to impress on visitors the importance of enhancing nature while producing food responsibly. In 2017 MCE sponsored a trip to the farm that introduced Chris to the effective environmental work they have been doing for the last 50 years. He is excited to join the newly formed Known and Grown Team, and to share his desire to expand the availability of locally grown, organic and humanely raised food.

Known & Grown STL works to build a resilient food community by supporting and spreading awareness about humane and chemical-free farmers within 150 miles of St. Louis. Known and Grown STL brands and supports farmers using sustainable practices while at the same time educating consumers about the benefits of locally grown and organic food and where to find it in our community.
