Ahead of the game. . . .

WatershedJust last week the State of Maryland, along with 5 other states and the District of Columbia, signed the Chesapeake Watershed Agreement. Our governor, Martin O’Malley, spearheaded the initiative and called it, “the most inclusive, collaborative, goal-oriented agreement the Chesapeake Bay watershed has ever seen.”

The agreement not only sets new standards towards protecting our bay, but also brings ecoliteracy into every school in the watershed. You can read a Washington Post article about it by clicking HERE and take a look at the full agreement by clicking HERE.

The Waldorf School of Baltimore has been actively infusing ecoliteracy into its curriculum for a long time now. This new development highlights the fact that WSB is on the cutting edge of modern educational thought, and that your students are well underway of becoming environmentally-sound leaders and stewards of the Earth they will inherit.

Enjoy the day!

Spring 2014: GREEN SCHOOL & GREEN POWER!!!

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.
