Our Village

 

Camphill is located on a 500-acre biodynamic farm ten miles north of Sauk Centre in Central Minnesota. People live together family-style in seven different homes. Everyone shares in the responsibilities of life in the community.

The Village has a strong agricultural component made up of farming and gardening. Craft work includes weaving and card-making, as well as a bakery that provides for the needs of the Village and sells in the surrounding area.

Life in the Village revolves around the cycles of nature, with festivals marking the changing seasons. Plays, concerts, lectures and continuing education add depth and color to the fabric of the community.

Camphill Village Minnesota is part of a worldwide movement that began in Scotland by Dr. Karl KΓΆnig just before World War II. The work of Camphill is based on the teachings of Rudolf Steiner, the Austrian scientist, philosopher and educator who also inspired Waldorf education.
