How do we help children develop resilience, fortitude, and perseverance? How can giving children more “real” reality and less virtual reality enhance their mental and emotional health? This day-long workshop at the Goldstein Farm in Elkhorn, WI, the site of Farmwise, will feature Bente Goldstein and will include a presentation, a chore rotation, artistic activity, and discussion. Bente Goldstein has been providing farm-based education to children for many years, took a class from 1st through 8th grade at Prairie Hill Waldorf School prior to that, and has run a homeschooling Waldorf enrichment program for many years as well. Bente has been the keynote speaker at a recent Alliance for Public Waldorf School’s conference.
This Saturday workshop will include morning snack and lunch and artistic materials used.
