Description: Camphill Communities California is a life-sharing community for adults with developmental disabilities located near Santa Cruz, California. Our vision of community living involves relationships of mutual respect, ongoing education, meaningful work, and natural circles of support.

Residents of Camphill California are dedicated to caring for the land using organic and biodynamic practices. During our long growing season, we produce more than one third of the fruits and vegetables that we consume from over six properties of carefully tended land, including a small orchard donated to us by our wonderful neighbors.

In addition to gardening, residents work in our weaving studio, crafting a variety of hand-woven items. Our herb crew is also a favorite workplace and includes the creation of a soothing herb tea and delicious culinary cooking mixes. Some Camphill residents with special needs even participate in supported employment programs.

ELIGIBILITY: Residents must be a client of the California Regional Center system.
Mission: Our mission is to create a community that supports all individual abilities and recognizes the potential of every person.
