Camphill Village Kimberton Hills is an agricultural and crafts community striving to restore vitality to community life and the natural enviornment. We live and work together, serving in extended family style households, craft workshops (bakery, textiles, pottery, woodwork), estate work, organic gardening and farming. The village fosters a strong cultural life of festivals, music, and art.
I’m Yui Tagawa. I live in Tennessee. I’m Maryville College student from Japan. I am very interested in volunteers.I like joining in communities and talking with new people. And I like helping people. In my experience, I have been to Cambodia to teach English and Japanese cultures as a volunteer. I had a great experience there. So, I’d like to have new experiences and built relationships with people through volunteer.
Camphill Village is a magical place. It is a family style community where everyone gets the opportunity to participate and work together in the many fun activities and craft workshops.
I had the greatest joy meeting new people; volunteers from all over the globe travel long distances to experience community life and service to others.
My favorite memory at Camphill Village was my time spent with the villagers; sharing stories, laughing and creating lasting memories.
I will always hold a special place in my heart for my Camphill family.
This place provides a good opportunity to work with people of developmental disabilities and working in various fields such as gardening, bakery, and pottery. The people that volunteer in the village are very friendly. You get to live in a nice house among villagers and co workers. It's a live/work type of environment. Would highly recommend.
