We're a little bit different than most organizations on here, so thank you for taking the time to read this and get to know us better!
Camphill Village Kimberton Hills sits on 432 acres in Pennsylvania, about 45 minutes outside of Philadelphia. We run a biodynamic garden and orchard, as well as an organic raw milk dairy, that supports our community and a 300 member CSA. We also have a cafe, a bakery, and several craft workshops, such as pottery and weaving.
Our village is home to 120 people, including adults with developmental disabilities. Camphill’s mission is to maintain a land-based community together with adults with special needs. All members of our community contribute to the village through biodynamic agriculture, handcrafts, and other ecological, social, cultural, and educational endeavors.
Each year we welcome about 20 service volunteers to join our community and share life with us. You’ll participate in all activities, with the opportunity to focus on what you’re most passionate about. There’s a lot to learn here and many people with whom to forge meaningful relationships.
You will have your own room in one of our houses and will live along side our villagers and coworkers. Meals are shared, most often eaten with your housemates or at our organic cafe. Your hours and schedule will vary, depending on village needs and also what you most want to learn about during your time here. Service volunteers also receive a monthly stipend.
