Waldorf Blogs... from the Southern Hemisphere


Once I had discovered Waldorf, and many beautiful blogs that celebrate and embrace it, I started to wonder how to translate many of the aspects to the Southern Hemisphere... where to go for Australian inspiration for how to incorporate Waldorf into our daily lives.

And now, I thought I would share these inspiring blogs with you...!


Birdies in their Nest

Danielle writes about Waldorf homeschooling her two children in beautiful Tasmania. As homeschoolers they started with a Montessori approach, before moving to Waldorf. Seeing how the alphabet comes to life for her children is lovely. Reading how they bring meaning to the festivals of the year in the Southern Hemisphere is inspiring, as the seasons are celebrated with a pagan flair. Danielle and her partner also make beautiful Waldorf toys for their shop OrganicKinder.

Meagan writes about her beautiful family's Waldorf inspired lifestyle. Sharing about their wholefood baking, simple and lovely crafts, nature play and gentle parenting. I adore looking over the photographs Meagan shares, capturing the wonder of their days. And I have been inspired by the wonderful seasonal guides she has created that are well suited to the Southern Hemisphere.



I've shared my thoughts about Aleta's lovely space before, but for this post thought I would share a little more...  I love seeing the books on Aleta's wishlist {and often can't resist them!}, and find her crafting inspiring. But also love seeing her boys grow and explore the world around them. And like many other talented Waldorf mamas, Aleta also has an Etsy store *grin*


The children's birthday parties that are celebrated on Purple Pear Farm are so magical in their simplicity and nature focus {if only we were closer!} Kate has lots to share, as a past Steiner teacher now living on her farm, following permaculture principles and biodynamic farming practices. And Kate provides food for thought in how to celebrate the festivals of the year in Australia.

Although Natalie has started a new blog ~ digestible kitchen ~ I still enjoy revisiting the little gnome's home, where you can find delicious and wholesome recipes, angelic crafts and eco living inspiration! And Natalie's photography is so captivating *grin*


Amber seems to have incredible energy, sharing wonderful crafts and working on new projects all the time! I enjoy reading about Amber's approach to seasonal celebrations and rhythm. And Amber has written a book Creative Parenting for Fun!
