A Year in the Life of an Organic Farm The Eight-Year Odyssey of a Waldorf Teacher and His Class An Introduction to His Life and Work

Harvest: A Year in the Life of an Organic Farm by Nicola Smith

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Contrary to what other reviewers said, this made me think, “Why would anyone do it?” The photos are beautiful and the writing is excellent — you are a fly on the wall and get to witness the good, the bad & the ugly (fights between the couple). It definitely made me appreciate the farmers at our farmers market a lot more.

rating: 4 of 5 stars
With Leo about to start at a Waldorf Kindergarten, I thought this might be a good way to learn about Waldorf schools. It was interesting to read and gave a teacher’s perspective about what having a class for eight years was like.

Rudolf Steiner: An Introduction to His Life and Work by Gary Lachman

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Very readable and I definitely learned about Steiner and his times. I have a new understanding of his very interesting life.
