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.

Please note that our first Volunteer Orientation of the season will be held on March 25, 2023.


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.

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 volunteer@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 ask for a minimum of 10 volunteers and a maximum of 30 total volunteers in your group.

Please fill out this form to inquire about group volunteer opportunities.
