At EarthDance we follow permaculture ethics: care for people, care for the earth, and share your abundance.
Many hands contribute to our yields and we recognize this by in turn sharing our harvest. Our apprentices, interns, staff members, and youth program participants regularly take home produce. May-September, apprentices, and staff receive a weekly share of the harvest.
EarthDance donates produce to community events such as Clay Cafe and gives to food pantries in Ferguson. Since 2013, EarthDance has partnered with Operation Food Search to provide farm-fresh ingredients for their Cooking Matters classes (healthy cooking classes for low-income families, seniors, and youth).
In 2017, EarthDance shared a value of $17,000 worth of food with our community, in addition to the $84,000 of produce sold.
