Highland Hall Waldorf School

Garden Gnome Society

The Garden Gnome Society (GGS) at Highland Hall, founded by Leslie Beers and Orly Pittock, is a resilient and vibrant group of current and alumni parent volunteers who support landscaping endeavors, campus renovations, and farm projects. The GGS brings the community of Waldorf parents, alumni, and donors together to beautify our campus with the magic of new plants, bright colors, and fresh coats of paint. 
 
This wonderful group also donates a weekly supply of food for the faculty! The GGS is a community supported group and all donations are welcomed! Please inquire about the farm supplies list if you wish to donate needed items.
