If you've ever wanted to have a vegetable garden at your fingertips, now's your chance. A non-profit farm Earth Dance is growing food and farmers.

"We do that through an organic farming apprenticeship program where people can actually come out to the farm, get heir hands dirty," explained Molly Rockamann, Earth Dance Founder.

Rockamann says the average age of a farmer in Missiouri is 57 so the goal of Earth Dance is to grow new farmers with a passion for healthy living.

The orientation for the apprentice program is in February. The cost to participate is $750. For information about signing up and where you can find produce head to www.earthdancefarms.org.
