We have several festivals a year like the Harvest Festival and May Faire. These festivals are a rich part of a Waldorf school’s life and they serve as both fundraisers and as community outreach. We can contribute the rest of the year as well in small but powerful ways – when polled, 98% of all gnomes agree, that this is THE easiest way to make extra money for our school.
