Waldorf schools around North America are cultivating gardens, tending bees and establishing bee-tending programs to help support and rebuild the pollinator population. For this, we owe great thanks to Turtle Tree Seed, a Biodynamic and organic seed farm located on the Camphill community in Copake, New York.

Turtle Tree Seed has generously donated nearly 1,500 seed packets to Waldorf schools across the continent to support their individual pollinator gardens. This was Turtle Tree's largest donation ever! In addition to the seeds, they created a seed harvesting guide for all school's to use as well.

Waldorf schools are planting these donated seeds to support an ecologically-green ‘continental parks system’ in backyards, playgrounds, school yards, and public spaces.

The aim is to raise awareness of the plight of the honeybee and all pollinators, protect and preserve the honeybee and all pollinators and create a more sustainable future for our planet.  Thank you Turtle Tree Seed!
