Golden Bridges School is a small, groundbreaking school entering it’s 7th full school year in September 2019. GBS was founded by Waldorf-trained teachers and currently operates in San Francisco’s southern Mission and Glen Park areas, serving preschool through fourth grade with 80 students and 23 staff members. Next year the school will expand to include a fifth grade. The school intends to grow into a full preschool-8th grade school.
The farm is the Heart of Golden Bridges School. Situated on Cotter street, our farm is an undeveloped 3⁄4 acre green space in the
Excelsior neighborhood. We envision it as a living organism, where all parts, including the individual children and teachers, are
interconnected and interdependent, thus contributing to a healthy, balanced, and whole integrated farm. We have a growing animal
husbandry program, which currently includes chickens, ducks, and rabbits. We care for several in-ground vegetable gardens, flower
beds, a small fruit orchard, and an herb garden, and start many seedlings in our 4’ by 6’ greenhouse. We make our own compost
on-site with animal manure and food scraps from our outdoor kitchen. Much of our space has been left “untouched” and overgrown to
encourage creative nature play.
