From Founding Seed to Worldwide Movement

The Camphill Movement is a worldwide network of homes and villages for children and adults with special needs. Inspired by the vision of its founder, Karl König, and a group of close associates, the growth of the Camphill Movement is the story of an idea about community: community as the basis for special needs education, therapy and living.

The world in which Camphill was born is a world that hardly exists today. In 1940, during the ravages of a brutal and devastating war, with the greatest resistance and under the most challenging of circumstances, Camphill was like a seed planted in the foreign, granite-strewn soil of northern Scotland. Some seventy years later the Camphill seed has taken root, grown, flourished and flowered, and propagated into many countries.

This book, bursting with over 200 photographs, is a joyful celebration of the story of Camphill. The fascinating feature-articles cover everything from the history of Camphill, to the development of individual communites around the world, and the future challenge of sharing Camphill's message with the wider world. The portrait is painted through debates that affect the Camphill movement as a whole, and through the personal stories that make up its communities.

This is a beautiful book filled with pictures, memories and stories, and above all filled with the people who have made Camphill what it is today.
