Would you love to grow your own food but don’t know where to begin? Or have your previous attempts at gardening fruits and veggies fizzled?

Get in the game: EarthDance is here to help you grow a delicious bounty! This 5-week course was designed for total beginners to gardening as well as those who want to plan and maintain their most successful garden yet. Spring Training will meet you where you are, with both online and hands-on options available.

Round the bases as you learn step-by-step how to choose the best crops, determine the right site for your garden, prepare your soil, manage your plot throughout the growing season, and put into play our easy tips to maximize your yield.

Do you live in Ferguson, Kinloch, Berkeley, Calverton Park, Cool Valley, or Dellwood?

EarthDance is offering Spring Training free to residents of the farm’s six surrounding municipalities. If you live in Ferguson, Kinloch, Berkeley, Calverton Park, Cool Valley, or Dellwood, you are invited to participate as our guest. You can choose from any of our 5 classes, select the entire bundle of online live classes, or even participate in the Online + Hands-on training that includes the Saturday workshops ($25 registration fee required for the full course, including 3 hands-on workshops as space is limited; this fee covers your t-shirt and vegetable seedlings!). Our goal in offering these resources at no financial cost to our neighbors is to better support our local community’s health and well-being. Many of our community members have experienced food apartheid, and we aim to help create a shift towards food sovereignty.

Note: This program is open to non-local residents as well!
