The guest speaker is Robert Gray Freeland recently retired after a 30-year executive career in Latin America with American Express Company.

Red Stick Farmer's Market
The cooler temperatures are here and farmers will have a mixed variety of early fall and late summer crops at the Market this weekend. Look for mustard greens, radishes, green beans, turnips, green onions, late summer squash, okra, peppers and even melons this Saturday. Late August and early September are traditionally a slower time in the growing season, but heavy rains from Hurricane Isaac also had an effect on many of our local farmers. Donations can be made to BREADA's Louisiana Small Farm Survival Fund to help these farmers.
