Kimberton Waldorf Farm Program
"Through outdoor projects, farm chores, woodland walks, songs, stories, and crafts, children come to an understanding of self, community, and the natural world. The deep empathy cultivated from the experience is life-affirming. As a result, young people are able to act responsibly in support of both the present and the future. In today’s world, the widespread destruction of nature can lead to feelings of helplessness, particularly for young people. In a Waldorf school environment, we find that this can be overcome by caring work on a farm. As a realm of giving and receiving, of sharing, farming gives rise to an understanding of life as a vast and constant exchange."
