Welcome to 2014 at WSB

Welcome to 2014! This new year will see some new and exciting developments at WSB. Some of the green projects you’ll see happening (and be able to participate in) around our campus will be rebuilding the earthen oven, an expansion & beautification of our school garden, a new pop-up greenhouse on our terrace, and the building of an herb spiral and a cob structure in the garden. I’m also happy to report that our chickens & bees are doing fine and seem healthy and strong. (Much thanks to the Devecka Family for caring for them over our winter break!)
The Student Council’s TerraCycle project is underway and we already have over 6,000 points to put to good use! Currently up for vote is to help provide fresh water to an African Village or help preserve an acre of US wildlife land. (We’ll be doing both actually — this vote is to set our first goal.) Also, parents & faculty will soon see a surprise gift from the Student Council popping up at events . . . but I’ll leave it’s revelation to them.
With the warmish days, we’ve already gotten started! Below are a couple of photos taken at lunch time this week as dedicated students and I prepare the new flowing edges of our expanded garden. As well as a photo of Children’s Garden parent, Roland Oehme, taken as we were planting some of the trees he donated to our school.
Have a wonderful weekend!
