Field Trips & Youth Volunteering

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 youth 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 Field Trip includes a walking & tasting tour of our historic farm, including education in our Youth Garden, greenhouse & hoop houses, 1.2-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!

“We loved walking through the greenhouse where we could taste the plants, interacting with chickens up close, learning about soil layers, planting the sugar snap pea seeds, digging the soil samples, and playing the seed/sprout/flower/fruit game. Thanks for the amazing experience!” -Susan Zerah, Forsyth School Teacher

Youth Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering at EarthDance is a great way for youth to get outside, get moving, and learn how important agriculture is their everyday lives! EarthDance welcomes groups of 5-20 students over the age of fourteen for farm-based experiences in our organic fields and Youth Garden. Possible farm projects include planting, weeding, mulching, or harvesting produce for market. Service learning opportunities are also available!
