My family is relocating to Blacksburg this summer.  I would love to connect with other moms/families that are interested in Waldorf education and homes.  Are there any groups or co-ops in the area?  We are still early in our Waldorf journey, but am constantly trying to learn more and connect with others.  My children are currently 2 1/2 and 3 1/2.  I am also considering opening up our home to two 3-4 yr olds for Waldorf inspired childcare.

I have a waldorf mommy friend in Va. I am not sure if she is on here, so I will email her and ask how close she is. I know she runs a co op so hopefully will be near you!

Oh, how I wish you were closer!  We are in Smyth County, just a bit too far for regular trips.

No luck so far.  :(  But Blacksburg is an awesome place to live and I'm sure in time we will find a few other Waldorf inspired families.  I'd really like to find a few that are interested in starting a homeschool co-op.  We've been very impressed with the drive to eat/shop/live local and how walking/biking friendly the town is.
