Spring 2014: GREEN SCHOOL & GREEN POWER!!!

7 May

Greetings! Spring us upon us and we are busy, busy, busy! Students have been expanding our school garden as well as planting trees and seeds in our new pop-up greenhouse. Our chickens are healthy and happy, and our honeybees are thriving. We will be harvesting wax and honey within the next couple of weeks.

In late April, our school was re-certified as an official Maryland Green School. Be sure to check out our extensive, web-based green school application here: http://waldorfschoolofbaltimore.weebly.com/
As well as this widely circulated press release: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2014/05/prweb11824154.htm

Another piece of exciting news . . . . In an effort to remain leaders into a sustainable future, The Waldorf School of Baltimore is now offsetting 100% of our yearly energy consumption with renewable energy! This avoids emitting 475,629 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and advances the U.S. green economy and energy independence.
