Project Description: Camphill Community Grangebeg is one of 15 Camphill communities in Ireland. We are a small farm based community with 20 people, 11 of whom have special needs. Camphill Communities offer people in need of special care a sheltered environment in which their educational, therapeutic and social needs can be met.

Work: Volunteers may have a variety of tasks such as cooking, cleaning, helping on the land or assisting in gardening or general maintenance as well as taking an active part in cultural activities and community-building. We try to share the running of the houses between everyone. This means everyone is involved in the cleaning, meal preparation, laundry and other household chores. We all participate in the various workshops, the running of the garden and farm, food preparation or craft making.
