Farmers

EarthDance grows farmers by engaging individuals from all walks of life in sustainable agriculture. Whether you are an aspiring food entrepreneur or merely “agri-curious,” we believe that our food system needs YOU. Our educational programming enables young people, seniors, college students, corporate managers . . . (and maybe you?) to experience the wonder and reward of growing food.  Help us harvest for a day, take a class on soil stewardship or prepare for garden success by enrolling in EarthDance’s new Spring Training program for gardeners.
