PEACE STUDIES DOCUMENTARIES AND VIDEOS OF FINAL PROJECTS AND GRADUATION ONLINE! 

If you were unable to attend the final projects or graduation ceremony in December 2013, or if you want to get a dose of inspiration again, watch them online! Our fearless Media and Technology Intern, Carl Sigmond, has posted hours of video on our website.


WHAT'S UP IN THE WOOLMAN GARDEN?

The garden is tucked in and resting for the winter season.  Our cover crop survived the cold snap in December and is waiting patiently under its protective straw quilt for longer days to come.  In the Woolman hoop house we have spinach, salad mix, kale, cilantro and radishes eagerly waiting for Wombats to return to campus.  We are so lucky to have the hoop house—most farms in our area are not able to harvest these crops this time of year!

WE WELCOME THE SPRING 2014 SEMESTER!

Staff, faculty, and interns are gearing up to welcome Woolman’s 21st semester class. We have new teachers that are excited about their second semester and plan to hit the ground running. Jennifer Stone, Peace Studies teacher, says, “I cannot wait for the spring semester to begin! I've been revising and adding to Peace Studies curriculum over break, and am so excited to learn from and with our new group of students.” Read More


THE NEW KID ON THE BLOCK 

Still unnamed, Baby Girl Cow, born in the first week of December, is looking forward to a semester of growth, alongside our new students.


STRATEGIES FOR TRANSITIONING BEYOND WOOLMAN

Woolman is a magical place. We often hear from students of the Semester School that coming to Woolman is a transformative experience. The land, the community, the curriculum, and the people all contribute to Woolman being a place where students discover themselves in new ways, fall in love with learning, learn to live in community, form life-long friendships, and connect deeply with the land. In fact the "Woolman bubble" can be so nurturing and healing that it can be hard to return home to “the real world!” We are looking for ways to support our alumni as they transition back home. Parents, students, and friends: we’d love to hear your ideas and tips for how to carry the Woolman magic back home with you. If you could give new alum students or parents a piece of advice what would it be? Submit your ideas on our blog!
