Kimberton Waldorf School is situated on 430 acres of bio-dynamic farmland, on the banks of French Creek, in semi-rural Chester County. The seven large school buildings are surrounded by fields, meadows, streams, and woods. The track and athletic fields lie between the main buildings and the school garden. Our garden building provides a light and spacious classroom for numerous main lessons and the gardening classes that continue through the school day. Our Rosebud Garden campus is located on nearby Hickory Grove Road, in a spacious, warm farmhouse. Across the road from the main campus are the farm, dairy, Seven Stars Yogurt production, and Community Supported Agriculture gardens.
