OPENING YOUR HOME

We are looking for families who have an extra room and would be interested in hosting someone from the wider Waldorf community.

 

Here are two opportunities:

  • Our school is offering the space for AWSNA (Association of Waldorf Schools of North America) to hold it's annual board meeting.  As a result some of the board members, made up of parents, alumni and teachers of Waldorf schools nationwide, are looking for a place to stay.  The dates of the AWSNA board meeting are: January 12 - 16, 2012.
  • Visiting German Student Teacher, Dominik Fuchs will be visiting January 2-January 27.   

If you would like to offer your home to one of these guests, please contact Marissa at the front desk.

12TH GRADE STUDENTS FEATURED IN FREE RANGE ZUCCHINI
Fresh Produce 

  

Free Range Zucchini 

is an online organic life magazine published by WSOC's own, Gamboa family.   

Free Range Zucchini is a magazine about "love, passion, pleasure and most of all about family and friends cooking and dining together.  It's a celebration of life."

 

An excerpt from the article: 

Students of the Waldorf School of Orange County took the initiative and set up a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program to provide the school community with organic produce mostly grown in their backyards. Once a week, the students fill large paper bags with fresh fruits, vegetables, sometimes nuts and eggs.
