A few months ago we let you in on one of our latest’s projects, our partnership with Earth Dance Organic Farm School in Ferguson to create St. Louis’ first-ever Living Yoga Studio. Since then, boy have we been busy! With YOUR help and the help of Whole Foods Markets’ Community Giving Day in June, we met our financial goal and raised $5000 to cover the cost of renovating the greenhouse space and all the expenses to make yoga available twice weekly throughout the year.
You haven’t left us hanging on the physical labor front either, joining in with our friends from Practicing Yoga Studio for volunteer dates on the farm this summer. So far we’ve completely cleaned out the greenhouse (no small feat), prepped the ground and planted seeds (which are starting to sprout!), and started priming the inside of the greenhouse with paint! We still need to install seedlings and plugs in the ground, dig a drainage ditch, complete painting the inside of the greenhouse and entrance and install lighting and a few miscellaneous pieces to complete our Living Yoga Studio home.
Miss out on your chance to get down and dirty at our previous volunteer dates? You still have one left to join in on the fun September 9th! Stay tuned for more information we’re hoping to open up shop the end of October. We’re so excited to see this dream come to life and hope you are too!
