We are a small Camphill Community with people who have special needs, situated on the old Rotvoll estate. It is right at the edge of the fjord, a 10 minutes' drive east of the city of Trondheim.
Camphill Rotvoll is very different from the other villages in Norway, as it is located in a typical residential area. About 25 people live in our 3 houses, with space for 10 adults who need help in daily life. At Rotvoll we have a large garden where we grow biodynamic vegetables and herbs, both outdoor and in our large greenhouse. We also keep a few sheep, together with our next-door neighbours: Rotvoll Waldorf School. We run a number of workshops: a large weavery, a juice- and jam-factory, a bakery and a small general store. Camphill Rotvoll also offers suitable work for people who do not live here, but come in on a daily basis.
