In 1977, a small school was born in the garage of a Tempe home. That first tiny group of nine students has grown into a thriving, innovative school serving thousands of children and families throughout the Phoenix area for the past 40 years. Over the years, Awakening Seed has remained true to its original mission of cultivating planetary stewardship, world peace, and social justice.
To celebrate the Seed’s 40 years, we’re planning a celebration on Saturday, April 22, which, appropriately, is also Earth Day. The event will include our annual spring picnic, Seed art silent auction, as well as a number of other fundraising activities to support our campaign for a new sign.
While maintaining our commitment to the Seed mission, the school continues to evolve in response to the times. As we fiercely protect the sacredness of childhood through play in the natural world, we also strive to prepare our students for the technological future they will inhabit. With that in mind, a year ago we developed a new website for the school that accurately portrays who we are. In that same spirit, we are in the process of creating a new sign that equally expresses the Seed’s interplay between nature and technology. To make this happen, we need to raise $25,000. We need your help.
