The 2017 Farm & Garden Apprenticeship at EarthDance Organic Farm School is the midwest’s only part-time, full-season organic farming training program. Located on a historic 14-acre farm in Ferguson, EarthDance teaches folks of all ages where their food come from and how to grow it themselves. Apprentices, affectionately known as “Freshman Farmies” receive 10 hours of hands-on education with our professional farmers and enrichment sessions focused on making their farm and garden dreams a reality.

Come learn about the 2017 Apprenticeship and tour your future outdoor, organic classroom at our “Meet the Farm” tour on Saturday, November 19th. Tours start at 1pm at the farm. For more information & to RSVP, please e-mail Kaitie Adams at kaitie@earthdancefarms.org or call 314-521-1006.
