Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors is a group of community residents who guide and support the farm as it grows and changes. They oversee the J. Steckle Heritage Homestead charitable organization which operates the Farm.

The Steckle Board of Directors works as a board focused on consensus building and teamwork.  They are involved in lending their many skills to advise and guide the organization.  Our Board meets a minimum of quarterly monthly to ensure the success of the overall organization.  If you have skills and interests that you think might be an asset to our Board of Directors, please contact us.  Get involved, and help guide the vision created by Dr. Jean Steckle to connect our cities with the land.

Board Chair: Tony Schall
Secretary: Shannon Loken
Treasurer: Emily Sereda
