Steve Owens

Steve Owens’ engagement with EarthDance is inspired by the fact that the organization acts in the spirit of “think globally, act locally” by building a local community committed to healthy organic food and training future organic farmers, which fosters values of voluntary cooperation, stewardship, and personal responsibility. He has degrees in chemistry and decision sciences (application of quantitative methods to business problems) as well as training and experience in project management (PMP Certification) and alliance management (CA-AM Certification). Steve is committed to organizations including the Project Management Institute, Association of Strategic Alliance Professionals, Crossroads College Prep School, where his grandson is a student, and Urban Harvest STL, in which his wife is also very active. His greatest hope for EarthDance’s future is that the organization becomes a nationally recognized resource for organic farming best practices and develops a certified program for the education of organic farmers/gardeners.
