A Week in the Woods

Posted in Blog

We were fortunate to have the 10th grade students and their teachers from the Seattle Waldorf School spend a week living, learning, and working in the Timber Forest in early October. Building on what they learned the previous year from working on Jubilee Farm, they were immersed in all aspects of the forest. Instead of following the path taken by Waldorfers in previous years of designing and building a new trail, this group did an excellent job of clearing and maintaining the growing network of trails in the forest. Additional projects included falling trees, yarding logs to the mill, making lumber and using the freshly sawn board to build protective structures around our beloved baby cedars. With rain in the forecast, they were fortunate in dodging most of the drops, which noone objected to.
