The opening of the new £305,000 therapy centre

Inside this issue is an insight into the success of the Nature Nurture programme at Camphill School Aberdeen and its success in helping children between 18 months and 11 years, many of whom have challenging background. Staying with the school, there is a story on the pupils who have been working on a community garden

Other news items include reports on Camphill’s conference on autism

to help the school that her sister attends.
Finally there is a feature on Camphill’s new fundraising drive
, with the appointment of Michael Hodgson as fundraiser for five of the seven Camphill charities that are part of Camphill Aberdeen
