Summerfield Waldorf School and Farm (SWSF) created their Greenbee Wildlife Web pollinator garden as part of the Santa Rosa City-Country Children's Garden Learning Project. High school students from SWSF came together with students at Sheppard Accelerated Elementary School (SAES) to sustainably garden a plot of land at SAES with the seeds donated from Turtle Tree and Seed.
In addition to planting the garden, the SWSF students taught the elementary school children about earthworms and instructed a mini-nutrition class while making lunch.
The two schools have worked together for the last eight years and approximately 220 students from SAES and 60 students from SWSF have been impacted by the City-Country Children’s Learning Garden Project -- coming together to share a love for the environment and be good stewards of the earth.
For the Waldorf education centennial, students in over 160 Waldorf schools across North America will create an ecologically-green 'continental parks system' by planting pollinator gardens in their local communities to help bees and insects thrive.
