Rainbow Garden School Store

The Store will launch for the year at the Fall Fair, October 29
Located in the Community House on the North Campus, our volunteer-run Rainbow Garden School Store is brimming with Waldorf-inspired items for all ages. Find books, playthings, personal care products, handwork supplies, beeswax candles, special handmade items, and more. Please check back on this page for news about special orders (Steiner Books, Danish Woolen Delight, Dr. Hauschka, Uriel Pharmacy) and special events. 100% of proceeds from store sales go to Housatonic Valley Waldorf School's operating budget.
A HUGE thank you to 8th grade parent, Jo Hurley, who has run the store for many years. We are pleased to announce that Sunflower Kindergarten parent, Natasha Daniels-Pearson will be taking over from Jo this year. We are looking for volunteers to open the store on school mornings. If you would like to help, please e-mail Christina Dixcy at cdixcy@waldorfct.org. Thank you Jo, Natasha, and all of our many school store volunteers!
