On May 12, 2016, EarthDance was honored to receive the recognition of FOCUS St. Louis, at the 19th annual What’s Right With the Region Awards ceremony at Sheldon Concert Hall.
FOCUS prepares diverse leaders to work cooperatively for a thriving St. Louis region through its experience-based leadership training, civic issue education and public engagement initiatives. Each year, FOCUS applauds the efforts of 20 individuals, organizations and/or initiatives that promote improvements in our community.
EarthDance’s farm-based educational programs were celebrated in the Demonstrating Innovative Solutions category, along with Jazz St. Louis, Health Care RX, and St. Louis County Library. EarthDance Founder Molly Rockamann explains that she was pleased for EarthDance to receive this type of attention, because “Ferguson is so rarely associated with “what’s right with the region.”
