Field Trips

At the EarthDance Organic Farm School, it is our goal to educate members of the St. Louis community about organic farming and gardening. Field Trips are a great way to introduce students and adult learners alike to the concepts of food production. Participants will see all parts of the farm and have plenty of time to ask questions. Each EarthDance Tour  includes a walking & tasting tour of our historic farm, including hands-on experiences in our pollinator front yard, kitchen garden, greenhouse & hoop houses, 6 acre vegetable production fields, and our permaculture orchard. Students will learn their food’s journey from field to plate and how they can grow it themselves!

Speaking Engagements

EarthDance family members can’t stop talking about what we do and the importance of the Good Food Movement! While we would love to have as many people out to the farm as possible, we realize that is not always feasible. But don’t worry, we can come to you! EarthDance charges a $100 honorarium for hour-long  speaking engagements, plus travel expenses for events outside of St. Louis.
