Earth & Vine

The annual Earth & Vine event is an auction benefiting the arts at Alice Birney Public k-8 School.

Each year, Earth & Vine raises money for our school through the generous donations, bids, and efforts of our community of school families and local businesses. While we miss the live event from the old days of yore (like, 2019…) we are excited to once again host an online auction.

Please mark your calendars and invite your friends and family to do the same!

Ways to Give
-BID on items – the highest bidder at 6pm on April 2 wins!
-FUND-A-NEED – Donate to our Fund-A-Need!   Our specialty programs, as well as our integrated art education, are part of what makes our Waldorf-inspired school so special and so important to support. The vivid watercolor paintings, the first letter stories drawn and shaded with beeswax crayons, the knit bunny and rainbow ball that proudly come home – with your support our Parent Guild is able to provide the supplies that make it all possible. Fund-a-Need also supports our Handwork and Eurythmy classes, vital components of our school’s commitment to nurturing the head, heart and hands of our children.
Thank you to our Event Sponsor
