EarthDance is a non-profit educational organic farm dedicated to growing sustainable food, farmers and the community for the St. Louis region.
EarthDance operates a part-time Farm & Garden Apprenticeship program in St. Louis, Missouri, on a historic 14 acre farm in Ferguson. (We use organic practices and grow in living soil, but are not yet certified organic.) First-year apprentices (or "Freshman Farmies") commit to a minimum of 10 hours/week to the program, between (1) weekly enrichment sessions that include field walks, classes that cover everything from farm-scale composting to selling at farmers' markets, and field trips to other local farms; (2) field work; and (3) selling at farmers' markets. Apprentices also participate in our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, not only producing and putting together the shares, but receiving one. In 2015, our 7th growing season, we are growing vegetables, herbs, flowers, and fruits on 3 acres. This will include +100 varieties of edible crops!
