EarthDance is a non-profit educational organic farm dedicated to growing sustainable food, farmers, and community for the St. Louis region.
In addition to our CSA, we sell our produce at the Ferguson Farmers Market on Saturday mornings (8am - 12noon, Victorian Plaza in Ferguson) May - October. We also sell to wholesale customers, including restaurants, caterers, and food trucks; contact us if you'd like to receive a weekly produce availability email!
EarthDance operates a part-time Farm & Garden Apprenticeship program in St. Louis, Missouri, on a historic 14 acre farm in Ferguson. (We use organic practices and grow in living soil, but are not yet certified organic.) First-year apprentices (or "Freshman Farmies") commit to a minimum of 10 hours/week to the program, between (1) weekly enrichment sessions that include field walks, classes that cover everything from farm-scale composting to selling at farmers markets, and field trips to other local farms; (2) field work; and (3) selling at farmers markets. Apprentices also participate in our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, not only producing and putting together the shares, but receiving one.
In 2014, our 6th growing season, we are growing vegetables, herbs, flowers, and fruits on 3 acres. This will include +100 varieties of edible crops! We have a very limited number of public CSA shares available this year. See our website for more information.
