Austin EcoSchool is now enrolling

We are long overdue for an update. Lots of exciting things happening at Loanables, including our coverage on KXAN and CNN (more on this later). I wanted to take a moment to pass along an announcement from Austin EcoSchool -- see below.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

What would a school look like if it were comprised of an old stone house, reclaimed furniture and school supplies, and trash for art supplies? Come to EcoSchool to find out. For two years we've been growing organic veggies, composting our lunch scraps, caring for the creek, and cleaning our building with vinegar. Our kids show up in used clothing, so they can play, create, and get downright dirty without worry. They've come up with hundreds of uses for the bamboo that grows in the yard, and they've given every oak a pet name. We pack our lunches as sustainably as possible, with real linens and dishes, not disposable stuff. This year our kids reached out to help men, women, children, and animals without homes. You need to meet this dynamic group of children;
they're expressive, compassionate, hardworking. Their hearts hold hope and their minds seek wisdom.

Austin EcoSchool is holding Summer Informational Orientation Nights:

Tuesday, July 1st, 6pm
Sunday, July 13th, 6pm
Thursday, July 31st, 6pm

The beautiful EcoSchool campus is located at 3000 Del Curto, Austin
TX 78704

Please join us to meet the community and discover if our school is right for your child. Austin EcoSchool is a 3-4 day/week school providing a bridge between homeschooling and full-time private education. Academic instruction is woven into a thematic and creative curriculum designed to make learning natural, relevant, and lasting.
