Seniors, Help plant seeds of change with Ferguson Youth!

by Kaitie Adams on April 29, 2017

EarthDance Organic Farm School, located in Ferguson, is currently recruiting senior volunteers to work with Ferguson youth through our Inter-generational Summer Gardening Program. Each week, youth from the Strength & Honor Mentoring summer program will visit our 14 acre vegetable farm to explore their food system in a safe and engaging outdoor setting.  Our goal is to introduce students to the vital role farming and gardening plays in their life, the importance of healthy eating, and how time spent moving outside is essential to lifelong health. And have a lot of fun!

This program runs every Tuesday from 11:00am to 12:30pm June 5th through July 25th (no class on the 4th of July).  We are looking for volunteers who:

  • Are over the age of 50
  • Love working with youth
  • Enjoy spending time outside
  • Have experience (or have always wanted experience!) growing food & flowers

Volunteers must be able to pass a background check and go through a 3 hour orientation to participate.
Call or e-mail Youth Educator Kaitie Adams (314-521-1006 youth@earthdancefarms.org) for more information!
