Step Up To the Challenge

The Waldorf School of Garden City owns Glen Brook which is located in Marlborough, New Hampshire. Situated in southwestern New Hampshire near Mt. Monadnock, this beautiful property includes several houses over 250-acres, a working farm with animals, large organic gardens, a natural lake, and miles of trails to explore the surrounding mountains and woodlands. Students go on trips once or twice each year where they work side by side to tend to the farm animals, prepare meals, cut and split wood, maintain buildings and grounds and complete whatever chores this rural setting requires. In the tenth grade students are challenged to go beyond the comfort zone of the farm and head further north to experience a multi-day backpacking trip.

Does your school do something similar?
