"A big part of our curriculum is environmental awareness," said Deirdre McEachern, executive director of the Waldorf School. "All of our food here is organically grown, so the children understand very early where it comes from. We even have chickens here, and raised beds. The children harvest the food, and we have a big harvest soup in the fall."Access to affordable, fresh, wholesome food every day is important for the health of our families and the ability to learn of our students. At Seacoast Waldorf School, children learn how to grind flour and bake bread. Children bring in vegetables from home to chop and make soup with weekly. Parents are encouraged to cook with their children and to only send healthy and wholesome food to school with their children for snack and lunch.
