Glenaeon Steiner School Newsletter – 23 Aug

Droughtbreaking work in the garden

This week lots of willing children, teachers and parents led by Sandra Frain were involved in preparing a magic potion of the Biodynamic sort. Students at Middle Cove and Castlecrag carried out four consecutive BD stirs on each campus, to try and help break the drought covering so much of our country.

They stirred and stirred the potion over three days, following the prescribed progression of applications, and then sprinkled it all over our campuses with their good wishes, hopes and prayers, all the while working to support the rebalancing of our earth and atmosphere.

It is our contribution to helping nature to rebalance itself with specially prepared medicines of the plant, mineral and animal kingdoms. Perhaps the homeopathic doses of such will help the rain so desperately needed to come.

Below: Sandra with Jonathan Wicker, who is a keen supporter over the years of the garden.

Dear Families,

As the earth and air are cooling in this autumn time so near,
we too come closer in this contracting time of year.
 
What to bring for playgroup?
Slippers/shoes, hats for warm feet and heads
A wee something healthy to share at morning tea.
 
Our Thursday – Tuesday playgroup welcomes you:
A spot of herb tea then a gracious morning circle, holding hands together under the sky so high. 
 
Into the playroom we prance, for a story the puppets gift for our glance.
Washing our hands, and creating with dough.
Now some inside play before a scrumptious shared Morning tea like so. 
The Dusty Gnome  leads us to ‘clean our home’, before we scamper out to the welcoming gardens for a play-filled roam.
(Adult centred activities abound, with supportive discussions on pertinent child – centred issues of the day.)
 
Our joyous closing circle signals
warm home-made bread and fragrant sphagni oil to bless us on our way.
 

“Slowly, slowly, very slowly slides the little snail, then quickly, quickly, very quickly runs the little mouse.”

See you soon,
Sandra
