Earth Day Celebrations April 14th

Join us for an Earth Day Celebration with the Children’s Land Canada Organization during the Open House.

Earth Day Workshop 10 -10:45 am

Jackie Ryan, executive director of Children’s Lands Canada will share with parents, caregivers and faculty members some land-based games and activities to do with children to encourage connections with the natural world. Jackie will also share inspiring stories of child-led global initiatives that honour Mother Earth and the natural world. Each participant will be invited to create an indoor garden that they can take home and share with their children. Waldorf Academy student, Emmi-Lou will introduce our special guests.

Please bring a clementine crate if you can (some are available).

Celebration Song: 11:45 am

Join us in the backyard for a land ceremony. Indigenous Students from Cathedral High School in Hamilton will share a song and a teaching with us to honour Mother Earth, the Ancestors and all creation. We invite families to bring food that is special to them, which will be placed on a food offering and given to the land.
