We’ve been celebrating Harvest and Michaelmas this week. Bringing together all the achievements of the community we enjoyed a shared lunch of four different soups cooked by the houses and fresh bread from our Bakery served by the Cafe team. The celebrations saw the Theatre group perform part of the Stranger Danger play, with Teo posing as the big bad wolf, Tamsin and Andrew as the two of the little pigs, Lee as the Gasman and Liam as the policeman. Our Residents Forum presented a short film about recycling called Greener Camphill focussing on reducing food waste. Alison talked about what happens in the Tools Workshop with help from Luke. Art and Craft, Garden and Newsletter Workshops presented their work to the entire community. Of course, we sang a few songs led by Joan and all felt rather grateful for what this year has brought.
Last week we took part in our Community Harvest Celebration. Camphill traditionally uses this time to reflect and celebrate all that has been produced and achieved this year. From a great garden harvest to creating fabrics, telling stories through mosaics and shadow play, even cycling miles to break out own records and taking part in a local arts exhibition, we have so much to be thankful for! Great work by all residents, volunteers & staff!
**CUSTOMER NOTICE** The Camphill Cafe and Shop will be closed to the public on Friday 29th September for Community Harvest Celebration. Camphill traditionally uses this time to reflect and celebrate all that has been produced and achieved this year.
We’re very proud of our tomato harvest! Our Garden Workshops has been quite adventurous this year planting varieties such as Ruthje, Red Pear, German Red Strawberry and Raspberry tomatoes. The beginning of our harvest has been quite interesting due to the sheer size of some of them but the best thing about them is that they taste delicious.
