After spending time in the farmlands of Fiji, Thailand and Ghana, Molly Rockamann returned to the U.S. and in 2008 founded EarthDance Farms, an organization dedicated to promoting the best of all things local, including food, farming, art and community.

With her unique part-time apprenticeship program, Molly is cultivating a new generation of stewards –- both young and young at heart –- for responsible farming and fresh, healthy food, all before her 30th birthday. Molly is NRDC’s 2011 Growing Green Award winner in the Young Food Leader category.
