Tempus: A Social Entrepreneurship Conference
March 14 & 15, 2014
Social entrepreneurs are people who create a business based on an idea for solving a social issue. Unlike most business entrepreneurs who model their business with the goal of making a profit, social entrepreneurs take into account the impact that their business can have on the world and society. Social entrepreneurs see a need in the world and try to meet that need in an innovative way.
At Tempus, successful social entrepreneurs will share their stories and what their personal motivations were to start their businesses. They will also describe how they managed to keep their business economically successful while still fulfilling their original mission.
After a speaker talks, there will be a discussion time in which the speaker can answer any questions or concerns about starting a socially driven business. There will also be an elevator pitch competition later during the conference, which will be a great time to try to market any budding ideas.
This conference will give you insight into the impact that a socially driven or responsible business can have and how you, as consumers, can make a conscious decision every day to help social and environmental causes.
Come join us at Kimberton Waldorf School on March 14-15, 2014 and be inspired by other people’s commitment to making this world a better place. Learn to “Do Well By Doing Good” and you might make a huge difference in the world.

Topic: Permaculture 101
Permaculture is a set of ethics, principles, and a design process for successfully applying lessons from nature to the human realm. An attempt to integrate scientific knowledge of the last four centuries with techniques developed by indigenous cultures over the previous forty, permaculture looks beyond sustainability towards systems that are diverse, regenerative, and resilient over the long term. Learn how you can apply permaculture techniques to create a healthier, more productive, resilient, and low-maintenance landscape this growing season.
Space is limited. To register to attend this event please email Melissa at or call 484.949.1600.
The annual Red Cross blood drive held at KWS is scheduled for Wednesday, March 19th from 1-6pm in the HS library. You can sign up for a time slot online, using the link below, in the HS office, or via email .
A KWS High School student committee is helping with the blood drive this year. Please support them, and especially the Red Cross by donating! There is an urgent need for blood in our region due to the severe winter weather and inability of donors to get to sites and scheduled drives. Thank you for your consideration!
