Support us

Join the team that supports Waldorf education in Motueka, and is building a new farm based school.  We have a school, a school community, we have a farm and soon we will have planning permission to build a new school on the farm.  We are now seeking the money and resources to start construction.  There are many ways to help and support us.

You can help by donating or lending money to us and by sharing our information.   Every supporter becomes a member of our support community.  Membership means you are part of a community that is making a better world through better education.  Our supporter community is a global community who share our vision.  Member benefits are explained below.


Soon we will be in a position to start building.  Some of the work can be done by volunteers and the school community but many materials and services will need to be purchased.  Donations can go toward the total amount needed for the next stage, or for a specific item.  Donate now


Our cash fund is a combination of local fundraising, donations and loans.  Lending money toward this project allows you to help us, become a member, and then get repaid once we are established.  Read more details.


Our cash fund is a priority but there are many other ways you can be part of this project.  People power is essential, we need ideas, practical skills and helpers.  We have started with a dream and a vision but that needs encouragement and support so it can grow.  We welcome all support, from small acts of kindness to major partnerships.  See our list of suggestions below.
