Stan was among the activists who first envisioned a regional food system for the KC region in the mid ‘80’s. When the Farmer’s Expo started in the 90’s he was the logical choice to provide entertainment which he has done more that 20 times over the years. Because of his background as an award-winning science teacher and a ‘60’s rocker, Stan became a full-time compost and recycling musical educator in the early 90’s. Over 30 years later he’s still going, working as Director of Education and Outreach for Missouri Organic Recycling. He’s received a score of local, regional, state and national awards. His career has taken him all over North America, to over 4,000 public appearances such as schools, concerts and speeches, to several foreign countries and in 2016 to England for a speech at the invitation of HRH Prince Charles.
