A New Home for the Rose Garden

Donation protected
Thirteen years ago Sharifa Oppenheimer, author of Heaven on Earth and founding teacher of the Charlottesville Waldorf School, turned her home into a magical place for children to grow and learn in an unhurried, natural environment. 

I want to help carry on what she has created. The time has come for The Rose Garden School to find a new home. I have found a property nearby Crozet, Virginia that has the potential to carry on our work. 

The land is bordered by a small river, has a forest, has ample garden space, and has a sweet little house that will be our home.

Please help me raise the funds for a down payment on our new home. I would like to make this happen as soon as possible! 

I am so grateful for any help that you can give in furthering the work of The Rose Garden School.

With hope for the future,
Rebecca Garson
lead teacher of The Rose Garden School
