When you become an EarthDance Farmhand, you join a community of people teaching regenerative agriculture, growing healthy food for marginalized people, and being voices for change in a fragile food system.

When you join EarthDance Farmhands:

  • You provide organic farming and gardening education for 25 - 30 Farm & Garden Apprentices, including scholarships for low-income participants, equipping all with the essential life skill of growing food.
  • You support the farm team in not only growing an abundance of highly nutritious food, but also distributing it to people and organizations in need.
  • You help us employ Ferguson-area teenagers on the farm and empower them with tools to lead healthier, more resilient lives.
  • You enable us to act on behalf of and in alignment with nature, building healthy soil and stewarding a historic organic farm for generations to come.
  • You support EarthDance’s new Pay-What-You-Can Farmstand (currently operating at the Ferguson Farmers Market).

Because we believe that everyone’s participation is essential to creating a healthy food system for all, we have created multiple levels for you to join at -- choose what works for you!
