Company description Plowshare Farm is an attempt to be responsive to the social, human, spiritual and ecological needs of our times. At Plowshare, people with a wide range of capabilities – including adults with developmental differences – live and work side by side to build an inclusive and sustainable community. As an Anthroposophically-based lifesharing community, we are innovators creating a model of social and ecological renewal.

Have you wondered if another way of living might be right for you? Do you find yourself searching for something more – a more ecologically sustainable lifestyle, more connection with people and the land, more fulfillment? Plowshare Farm might be just what you’ve been searching for.

If you’re someone with a pioneer spirit, there is room here to make a real contribution to building a sustainable community. Job description Lifesharing
Do you wish for an integrated lifestyle for yourself (and your family) that values the human being, the earth, the home, practical arts, Waldorf education and the insights gained through Anthroposophy? Have you considered lifesharing?

Do you have some of these traits, related experiences and skills:
  • A passion for the Nurturing Arts, Practical Arts and Social Arts?
  • Living in community? Waldorf School teaching? Foundation in Anthroposophy?
  • Building maintenance and care? Mechanics/equipment care?
  • Home health care? Manual arts?
  • A homesteading impulse?
  • Spiritual striving?
  • Conservation/environmental stewardship?

 

As a lifesharing community grounded in Anthroposophy, we are innovators creating a model of social and ecological renewal.

If you’re someone with a pioneer spirit, there is room here to make a real contribution to building a sustainable community.

At Plowshare, we live in extended family households that include people with developmental challenges, yearlong service volunteers, coworkers, and often children. People who demonstrate qualities of leadership and presence take responsibility for a household and also carry a craft (such as farming, gardening, handcrafts, pottery, baking, etc).

We invite inquiries from people who have the experience to step directly into these responsibilities, and also from younger people who hope to grow into them.

Plowshare Farm respects and values family life. We offer a balanced lifestyle including meaningful work, time for oneself, generous vacation time (6 weeks per year), health care, a contribution toward Waldorf School tuition, compensation and retirement. We also offer training in Social Therapy through the Camphill Academy.

Plowshare Farm is nestled in the woods of southern New Hampshire where there are thriving Waldorf Schools, adult education opportunities, an active Anthroposophical Society, and a beautiful natural environment. We are an hour and a half northwest of Boston.

To begin a conversation, please contact us at service@plowsharefarm.org or 603-547-2547.

Plowshare Farm is a Camphill affiliate, a member of the Anthroposophic Council for Inclusive Social Development, and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
