Camphill Kimberton celebrates AmeriCorps Week with a Community Volunteer Day

Camphill Village Kimberton Hills will celebrate AmeriCorps Week - Saturday, March 10 through Sunday, March 18, 2012 - with a volunteer work day set for Sunday, March 18 from noon to 4 p.m.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about Camphill Kimberton and AmeriCorps while giving back to your community. Come experience a day of work on this 432-acre biodynamic farm and help with invasive species removal, estate work and orchard maintenance.

AmeriCorps offers opportunities for adults of all ages and backgrounds to serve through a network of partnerships with local and national nonprofit groups. AmeriCorps week recognizes the commitment of AmeriCorps members and alums by highlighting the extraordinary impact they make across our nation every day. Each year, Camphill Kimberton is host to approximately 20-25 young adults who receive a year-long intensive, hands-on experience living and working in this community that includes adults with developmental disabilities. Of this group, half are AmeriCorps participants.

Volunteers are asked to bring their own lunch and shovels, gloves and trowels, if able. Some amazing snacks - made at Camphill Kimberton - will be served. If attending, please RSVP to shaylyn.decker@gmail.com. Volunteers should meet at Rose Hall at noon. Work will happen rain or shine.

Camphill Village Kimberton Hills is located at 1601 Pughtown Road, Kimberton, Pa. Follow signs for Rose Hall, located at the top of the hill on Camphill Drive.
