Join our intentional community and non-profit organization that is home to 45 people including adults who have developmental and intellectual disabilities and people from all around the world. Gain experience and skills in homemaking, biodynamic farming, organic gardening, artisan baking, food processing and preserving, loom weaving, woodworking, conflict resolution, and community building while collectively working towards healing the 525 acres we call home. People of all ages come from all over the world as individuals, couples, and families to be part of our community as live-in volunteers. Some come for one year to gain experience after school and before starting their careers, some come seeking a refreshing and more meaningful lifestyle, and others come open-endedly to settle down with their families. Live-in volunteers are compensated with a comfortable lifestyle, rather than a salary, and have their costs of living covered by the community. At Camphill Village Minnesota, we focus on capabilities, not disabilities. Everyone works together in the houses, shared community spaces and on the land to sustain our village. Each of us has something to offer. What will you bring to the table?
