Hello from Alexandria, VA, at Potomac Crescent Waldorf School, (PreK-5)
I'm an active member of BDA and an active BD gardener and sometimes farmer. My school (Potomac Crescent Waldorf School) started a BD garden, 1080 sf, on Nov 5th, 2016. We added BD compost and BD soil from White Rose Farm in MD, and wrote grants for seeds, fencing, and materials for a compost bin. Parents, a few teachers and school children built the compost bin, spread BD compost, sprayed BD preps and sowed seeds form Johnny's Seeds. (another grant)
