Apply to be an EarthDance Apprentice in 2015

Join EarthDance for a free informational session about their Farm & Garden Apprenticeship at Schlafly Bottleworks Tuesday, February 10th, from 6-7:30 pm. Hear from former apprentices & learn about the program's benefits. (For example, we accept AmeriCorps Awards & VA education benefits, & your participation can count as college credit.)

You can apply via our website here. Applications are due Sunday, February 15th at 12 pm.

What is the Farm & Garden Apprenticeship?
You might be looking for a career in farming, or simply interested in learning more about where your food comes from & how to grow it. The program (9.5 hours/week from April-October for $700) offers weekly classes on topics from methods of propagation to food preparation, field trips to local farms, a share in our Community Supported Agriculture, networking opportunities with leaders of the local good food movement, & the chance to make good friends down in the dirt.
Questions about the program? Contact Apprenticeship Coordinator Tori Dahl at or call us at 314-521-1006.

Why Apply to be an Apprentice?
"Working and growing with a dedicated group of motivated, environmentally-conscious consumers has been a rewarding experience. At EarthDance we cultivate food and friendship." - Penelope Beache, Class of 2011
