My Voice:

already 1965 i had the first chance to have an impression from botton.. since it was my shinning example how to delvelop places with real inclusiv character. that´s how we developed our initiatives in north-germany. by now 12 farms cooperate after that modell. again a number of other places took our initiativ as an example . that´s how evelution takes place if it is based on personal engagement. and surely botton is the inspiring element. don´t touch that impuls. www.weide-hardebek.de

Sarah - United Kingdom

My Voice:

I visited at the beginning of November 2011, spent about 10 days in the village. Everywhere I was impressed by how well everything looked, how active and independent the villagers were. I spoke to many different people, also many villagers, who were very clear about what they were doing in Botton and why they were doing it, they seemed to have balanced and (in a positive way) challenging lives. Several co-workers seemed to be very depressed - was Botton dying?! - but what I saw seemed very much alive.


Botton is in my thoughts each evening at this difficult time, and I hope and pray that those concerned will find the strength and optimism to continue.

My Voice:

Having lived in Botton Village for close on 30 years I am deeply indebted to the life-sharing and learning from those around me.I have moreever lived in about 5 other Camphill communities learning to live these ideals.Now in "active retirement" I adhere to those core principles and am helping/supporting/practicing as much as age permits me. In this learning-living with not for my friends and mentors of  the good life have given me much more than I them.
