Cherry Orchards is, and has been for more than forty years, a therapeutic community seeking new ways to live a healthy social life in our troubled world.

Inspired by the philosophy of Rudolph Steiner, we believe in a holistic approach to life, supporting the acceptance and promotion of the uniqueness of each human being and the caring and healing of the earth using natural and sustainable methods.

We work in our garden producing food and flowers, we have a farm and woodland, and we explore what it means to share resources and to find new ways to relate to money that make it our servant not our master.

Some of us work with people who seek support in times of distress, and encouragement in their individual development towards health by being part of a tolerant and inclusive community.

We dance and sing with and for each other, paint and sculpt, craft and cook and give rise to a cultural life to celebrate our humanity.

We welcome anyone wanting to set foot on a new path in life, we can offer support and participation in a communal life to those who are ready to work hard and prepared to take a risk to explore personal development in a social context.
