Newton Dee Camphill Village
We are a suburban community of 185 people, including 90 adults with special needs. We live and work together in 21 households, working on the land, and gift/coffee shop. We receive no salaries and our needs are met by the community. The management of the community is based on consensus with day-to-day decisions being made by mandate working groups. Our workforce is based on volunteers, with young people from Britain and abroad joining us (minimum age 19) for a minimum of one year. Our striving is based on anthroposophy, formulated by Rudolf Steiner. We work out of Christianity and celebrate the festivals of the year. Although we are members of a worldwide organisation, each place runs independently, to meet the specific nature of that place.
