This event is being hosted by Orchard Valley Waldorf School, this Friday, March 16th, 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Lisl Hofer, teacher of the Kroka Vermont Semester Program, Marlow NH, will be coming to Orchard Valley Waldorf School with 9 high school students who have been traveling by foot/ski from the MA border heading to the Canadian border – at the NorthWoods Stewardship Center in East Charleston they will build a canoe to travel home on the Connecticut River.
They are coming to OVWS on Friday, 3/16, 6:30 – 8:00 pm to give a presentation of their trip and student sharing of their crafts, songs, stories, poetry. They will likely share some birch or chaga tea. This is one of two semester programs – the Vermont Semester occurring in the spring semester of the year and the Ecuador Semester in the fall semester each year. The Kroka programs are in strong alignment with Waldorf educational values and principles. Students create a main lesson book and are engaged in traditional crafts, artistic work, applied learning all within a small intentional social community of 12 – 14 students. Kroka is a wonderful organization for children and youth offering high quality authentic experiences. The presentation is for youth and adults who are interested in this sharing or curious about the Kroka programs for themselves.
