Rachel Levi, EarthDance’s Program Director, joined EarthDance as an AmeriCorps VISTA member in 2010. Her responsibilities include curriculum design, partnership development, program evaluation, grant writing, and management of the EarthDance programs team. Rachel first observed the magic of growing food as she watched her mother tend the family vegetable garden at her parents’ home in Ferguson. Learning and teaching in one capacity or another are a constant for Rachel. Her current position allows her to support and facilitate transformative hands-on learning for adults and children through EarthDance’s apprenticeship and youth programming. Rachel is excited to be back in her hometown, growing food, farmers, and community!
