Solborg is a multi-cultural social therapeutic community for disabled adults and is part of the international network of Camphill villages.The aim of Camphill villages and of Solborg is to create a new form of community life inspired by anthroposophy, together with disabled adults, as a community with an alternative lifestyle based on sustainability in all aspects of life. About sixty people belong to the Solborg community. The village consists of five family houses where we live together in “extended families” and where people with and without special needs live together. We are an international community with people from all over the world. We all work together with adults with varying disabilities aiming for understanding and inclusion in all aspects of our lives. Our volunteers and co-workers participate in a strong multinational cultural and social life which is fostered by both living and working together.
Solborg aims to be as environmentally sustainable as possible. Solborg has an ecological farm and garden both of which supply much of the food which is consumed in the community. We are especially concerned with environmental sustainability and have communal cars, encourage use of public transport wherever possible and eat mainly organic food, preferably produced by our own farm and garden. The principle of sustainability continues in daily community life and is a key part of our day to day work. We have a number of workshops which are integral to the community as we try to create meaningful work for every member of our community. We have a biodynamic farm and vegetable garden, a herb garden, a forest group as well as a weavery, bakery and cooking workshops in the houses.
