Work Life

In Camphill Holywood, as in all Camphill communities, work in the community has purpose and meaning.  Each member of the community participates and contributes in whatever capacity they are able to.  Work can be in the houses and social spaces, helping to cook, homemaking, preparing for festivals or gardening and community members can also help in a variety of different roles in the workshops (the bakery, cafe and shop).   

Contributing to the community gives each individual the opportunity to feel a sense of responsibility, belonging and value, which in turn promotes confidence and self-esteem.
