Newton Dee Village is one of 90 Camphill communities around the world. We are a semi-rural community of around 200 people, 93 of whom are adults with learning disabilities. Our striving is based on anthroposophy, formulated by Rudolf Steiner. We work out of Christianity and celebrate the festivals of the year.
We live and work together in 21 households on a 170-acre estate. The products of our village workshops include toys, metalwork, and bakery and confectionery goods. In addition, we have a cafe, gift shop, and grocery store, and also two farms and gardens that are run using biodynamic methods.
We receive no salaries, and our needs are met by the community. Our workforce is based on volunteers, with young people (minimum age 19) from Britain and abroad joining us for a minimum of one year. We are open to new members as space is available. Please inquire by letter or phone to the reception group at the address and phone listed above.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
