Missouri: EarthDance seeks Organic Farming Apprentices

29 Nov

EarthDance is Now Accepting Applications for the 2011 Organic Farming Apprenticeship Program

EarthDance, an educational farm located in Ferguson, MO, is currently accepting applications for the 2011 season of their Organic Farming Apprenticeship program.  The apprenticeship is an opportunity for St. Louis area residents to learn how to grow food organically on a real working farm, close to home.  EarthDance has created a cooperative learning and working environment well-suited for individuals who want to gain practical organic farming skills on a part-time basis.  Apprentices, or “Freshman Farmies,” commit to a total of 10 hours (minimum) per week to field walks, on-farm enrichment sessions and workshops, farm and market labor. In addition, the apprenticeship program includes monthly field trips to local farms and a weekly share of the harvest through our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. 

Application details are available on our website, http://www.earthdancefarms.org/become-an-apprentice/
