The Ita Wegman Association is a provincially registered Charity that operates Glenora Farm, a 100-acre biodynamic farm located just south of Duncan on Vancouver Island. We are a life-sharing community, where adults with developmental disabilities live, work, and learn together with their caregivers. Cultural, artistic and therapeutic experiences are provided through residential home care and day program activities. It is our belief that given space and support, each person has the potential to thrive.
Our Life on the Farm
The Glenora Farm Carrying Coworker group is comprised of folks who have committed to the community for three years or longer. This group is responsible for “carrying” Glenora Farm forward in the communities common goals. We share the work of the farm and life together as a community of coworkers, neighbors and caregivers.
Our residential care homes are set up in the style of an extended family, consisting of: a set of House Coordinators, a couple of short-term volunteer Coworkers, a few Companions and (in some cases) children all sharing life together within the home. We all participate in typical household responsibilities, go on fun outings, celebrate special events, work together to navigate conflicts and share three meals a day around our big farm-style tables.
It is our endeavor to create an environment in which those who are in need of special care, and those who provide it, can relate to each other as companions rather than as professionals and clients. In the way we live together, in the way we care for the land and in the things we make, we intend to uphold the ideals of Camphill, in which each contributes what he or she is able to, and receives in turn what he or she needs.
