Learn to Grow Food with the Farm & Garden Apprenticeship! 
by Chelsea Burdge, Programs Assistant


EarthDance’s Farm & Garden Apprenticeship is a part-time, hands-on learning experience

for people of all gardening and farming skill levels. This program prepares folks to start their
own projects from backyard gardens to small farms by covering a wide array of topics from
seed to market. Apprentices work and learn alongside experienced EarthDance farm educators \
for 8 hours a week and attend a weekly class. These classes are taught by EarthDance farm educators,
guest lecturers, and also include field trips to local urban and rural farms.
