Y ON EARTH PARTNERS WITH ASSOCIATION OF WALDORF SCHOOLS OF NORTH AMERICA
Celebrating 100-Years of Waldorf Education, AWSNA taps Y on Earth for Products & Programming
BOULDER, COLORADO, September 21, 2018 – The Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) has tapped the Y on Earth Community (YOE) to provide materials, resources and programming for its Waldorf-100 campaign, celebrating 100 years of Waldorf education throughout North America. YOE is providing Biodynamic Source’s Buffalo Soil Activation Preparation & Field Spray (BD Prep) along with two of its recently-published books, the Soil Stewardship Handbook, as well as the children’s book Celebrating Soil, at a special discount for AWSNA community members and other supporters. With special BD Prep made by Biodyanamic Source at Sustainable Settings farm in Colorado, this “Parents & Educators Kit” empowers communities to experience soil-stewardship ceremonies in the spirit of Rudolf Steiner’s Biodynamic framework, and makes the ceremony experience easy, fun and impactful for all ages.
AWSNA supports a network of 160 Waldorf Schools in Canada, Mexico and the United States, many of them K-12. According to Nita June Davanzo, Waldorf100 Director, “Our Waldorf100 campaign is kicking off this fall, and will continue throughout 2019 – supporting our member-schools, teachers, and parents in their cultivation and stewardship of pollinator gardens and the living soil that gives them life. The Y on Earth Community is providing an amazing and powerful suite of resources for our efforts, enhancing our schools’ activities and curriculum-integration with our out door and garden-based education. We are thrilled to have the Y on Earth Community as a partner in this momentous anniversary celebration!”
To support AWSNA’s campaign, the Y on Earth Community is making its “Parents & Teachers Kit” available to the general public, and 10% of the proceeds will be given to AWSNA’s Waldorf100 efforts.
The Y on Earth Community is a non-profit project that delivers innovative products, content, and in-person experiences to communities, corporations, schools and municipalities throughout North America. Author and founder Aaron William Perry is available for speaking, consulting and coaching engagements, and can be reached through the yonearth.org website.
