Camphill California welcomes back old friends  

 We never truly say goodbye to coworkers, though they may leave the community they have a knack for popping back up. This month we were lucky enough to be visited by not one but two coworkers from last year: Ilona Harabin and Lukas Konzelmann. Over the course of their visit they were able to help out around Camphill, visit with friends and coworkers, and prepare meals.


"It was very special to be able to be there for Sarah's Memorial and to share stories of our time together with her. It was great to reconnect with all the people that I had become close with during my year at Camphill California and to see that this connection to the people and the place continues to be relevant in many ways." - Lukas


"I'm so thankful to everyone who made it possible for me to visit on such short notice. it was really wonderful to see everybody, and it meant a lot to me to be able to attend Sarah's memorial service." - Ilona
