"The Camphill Movement is an initiative for social change inspired by anthroposophy. Camphill communities are residential "life-sharing" communities and schools for adults and children with learning disabilities, mental health problems and other special needs, which provide services and support for work, learning and daily living. There are 119 Camphill communities in 23 countries in Europe, North America, southern Africa and Asia (as of March 2012)." - wikipedia

The intentional communities directory

"If you are looking for an intentional community, ecovillage, cohousing, commune, co-op, or other cooperative living arrangement, browse through our community lists - alphabetic, geographic, or by type of community (ecovillages, communes, cohousing, co-ops, or christian), look at our maps, or search our database. You can filter your search on many key characteristics of each community such as location, size, etc."

Coed Hills Rural Art Space -

Pronounced 'coyd’, a Welsh word meaning "woods", Coed Hills Rural Artspace is one of Wales’ leading centres for sustainable living and the creative arts. We aim to become a centre of education focused on nature, sustainability and traditional woodland skills and crafts, contributing to local tourism, employment and the rural economy. We are working towards self-sufficiency in energy production: this will reduce our costs and our effect on the local and global environment, and serve as a living experiment in what is possible. We do not claim to be perfect, but we are constantly exploring and sharing what we learn both from cutting edge technology and from the knowledge and wisdom of previous generations.

We grow food following permaculture principles and aim to demonstrate ecological land use, low-impact living and artist creativity, as well as giving people the opportunity to experience and practise all these things for themselves. As a social enterprise we offer a range of opportunities to people in the area: local organisations, schools, colleges, and a diverse range of individuals and families use our facilities for pursuits ranging from family camping weekends to wedding receptions and charity events. Theur website is under construction at the moment ( www.coedhills.co.uk ) but you can get further info on their Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/groups/36125341571/


Faslane Peace Camp

Faslane Peace Camp is a permanent peace camp sited alongside Faslane Naval base in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. We are protesting against Trident, the British Nuclear weapons system which consists of 4 nuclear powered submarines, each armed to the teeth with enough explosive plutonium to end the world (all true). This is the sole reason for our existence and as such, those living here have put our personal lives, for the most part, on hold to live here and campaign.

We are always happy to welcome people who are interested in the issues and want to help out a bit with camp life like chopping wood, painting caravans, repairing structures... we especially like to host people who are interested in making mischief with us.
