A Decade of Making A Difference!
Celebrating Women's Voices 10th Anniversary


Alberici Headquarters
WV First Anniversay Party at Alberici
The first Womens Voices meeting was held in May, 2005 at the University City library. During our first year, our programs were held at Alberici's LEED Platinum-certified Corporate Headquarters building, and our First Anniversary Party was held there in May 2006.

As we begin our 10th birthday year, we're ready to celebrate right back where we started ... at Alberici! We're planning a party and Women's Voices members are invited.

We'll have:
  • food and drink to enjoy
  • a chance to mingle with old and new WV members
  • live professional music to make your heart sing!

Dig Dancing in the Dirt!


Women's Voices regular monthly programs end following our May meeting (we'll resume in September). But we won't be idle. Summer gives us an opportunity to meet and learn about innovative programs in the community. On Tuesday, June 16, we will will have the opportunity to tour EarthDance Farms, the oldest operating organic farm west of the Mississippi.

Located in Ferguson, EarthDance offers a gardening apprenticeship program, which gives beginning growers an introduction to the skills and practices of sustainable agriculture.

Last year EarthDance began YEAH!, an innovative approach to connect young people to the natural world, healthy eating, and organic farming. The farm engages young people through field trips to the farm, collaborates with the Ferguson-Florissant School District, and employs a junior farm crew.

On June 16 we will walk through the gardens, hear about all the EarthDance programs, and learn how they are helping the Ferguson community.

You can sign up for this program now by emailing info@womensvoicesraised.org. You can bring your children or grandchildren, but let us know how many and their ages.

In the meantime, this five-minute video is a good introductions to the farm.
