Case Study 2:

Camphill Ghent

Chatham, New York
Not Yet Available

Outcome Metrics

  • Town homes and larger apartments filled quickly and ultimately a waiting list formed before construction completed, reinforcing the recognition of a greater community need.
  • Careful site planning provides access to nature from walking paths along the ponds and between the co-houses and townhouses to outdoor activities of gardening and farming.
  • Residents are more engaged in outdoor activities, including biodynamic farming, gardening and walking the 114 acre property; Camphill Ghent is truly self-sustaining, supportive and secure.
