Monthly Happy Hours on the Farm

EarthDance Organic Farm School is a certified organic farm, which means no herbicides or pesticides! Dealing with weeds the organic way takes persistence, the right tools, and innovative techniques. Our primary strategy is to simply hoe the farm as often as possible and never let weeds in any plot go to seed.

We are looking for awesome volunteers like you to come out to the farm, help hoe and drop mulch around the property. Volunteers will work on a weeding project for 90 mins. Afterwards, everyone can enjoy a cold beer or two while taking a tour of our beautiful 14-acre campus. **This event will be BYOB and for individuals 21 years and up**

Thursday, July 27th, 5:30-7:30pm

Thursday, August 24th, 5:30-7:30pm

Thursday, September 28th, 5:30-7:30pm
