Project Description:

Beautifully situated in the middle of the North York Moors National Park. Our group of 80 adults, many of whom have a learning disability, has been newly es- tablished by former residents of Botton Village Camphill Community. Together we have a 60-year history of living and working together.

We have launched the Esk Valley Camphill Community as new venture to con- tinue our traditional way-of-life. We work with ideas of Rudolf Steiner and run 5 acres of garden for bio-dynamic food production, craft workshops and busy cultural programme of performance and Christian festivals.

Work: Most of our work is centered around the households themselves and their upkeep. We emphasize enhancing the health and well-being of everyone within their social context. We prepare and host meals, keep rooms clean and tidy, wash laundry, put fresh flowers on tables, bake birthday cakes, with regular observance of Christian celebrations and festivals.

Community Gardens use organic and Biodynamic agricultural methods with live- stock and the cultivation of crops. Volunteers make an essential contribution growing food for the community in all seasons.

We own the local health food shop in Danby, community members help both in the shop and with shop-related projects.
