Joia Walker

Joia Walker, a McCluer Senior High graduate, spent most of her life right here in Ferguson. After studying Culinary Arts at Forest Park Community College, she started her own holistic meal prep business, Inheirited, which ultimately led to a deeper passion for food and herbs and where they come from. Joia participated in EarthDance’s 2022 Americorps summer apprenticeship, a program providing aspiring farmers a full-time immersion in small-scale organic fruit and vegetable farming from seed to market for 10 weeks. She found such alignment of her own personal mission with the farm’s that she has joined the EarthDance staff, serving in the important role of Farm to School Educator.
