Cultivate Together! Volunteer Program

EarthDance provides a unique volunteer environment for schools, community and corporate groups, and individuals. Volunteer opportunities range from planting and harvesting fresh vegetables, to campus construction projects, to general farm maintenance. Join us as we grow the Local Food Movement!

Volunteer Orientation Registration

First time and recurring volunteers are required to attend an orientation prior to volunteering. Orientation for volunteering will be held every 4th Saturday of the month at 8:00am through August. EarthDance is looking for a small group of dedicated volunteers that can join the farm team weekly during the growing season. Registration for Volunteer Orientation is now live.

Sign up for our next volunteer orientation, Saturday, August 27th, from 8-9:30 am.

Individual Volunteer Opportunities

We welcome groups of all ages to the farm, but individual volunteer work is restricted to ages 14 and up. Got something else in mind? Let us know if you want to donate a particular skill or passion! We’re always looking for volunteers to help in our office and with farm maintenance, carpentry, landscaping, and machinery.

First time volunteers are required to attend an orientation prior to volunteering. Please register for the next volunteer orientation here.

Our regular volunteer shifts take place from April-October on the following days:

  • Tuesdays 8-11am and 1-4pm

  • Thursdays 8-11am only

  • Fridays 8-11am and 1-4pm
  • 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month 8-11am only

EarthDance is an approved site for Missouri Master Gardeners to fulfill their volunteer service hour requirement. Contact britt@earthdancefarms.org to inquire about opportunities.

Group Volunteer Opportunities

From weeding to harvesting and all sorts of farm projects in between, volunteering with a group at EarthDance is a great way to learn more about where your food comes from while helping feed your community. We accept groups ages 14 years+ and up to 10 total volunteers at a time (groups are limited due to COVID safe policies).
