Margaret Boydstun was a well-loved member of our community. The qualities of faithfulness to the people and love of the land around her have informed her final wishes, as she acknowledged Camphill Ghent generously in her will.
Margo David, a close friend and Trustee of Margaret Boydstun, says:
“Her bequest makes so much sense. She has been able to be a woman of additional impact now, even in her passing. The gift completes her life with the integrity of who she is. I know Camphill Ghent will use the funds from Margaret well. It is an organization whose vision exudes so well from it. I am grateful for all that goes into sustaining this rich resource for living in older age and vulnerability with so much dignity and joy.”

“Knowing of the excellent reputation around the world that the Camphill movement enjoys, I was honored to become the first chairman of Camphill Ghent’s board. This bold experiment in integrated senior living represents something quite new for Camphill in North America. Camphill Ghent is setting an example not only for Camphill but for all those who have an interest in how people of varying abilities can live together in community as they grow old. I'm excited to be part of this effort.”
“I have a special appreciation for the care provided here at Camphill Ghent. I feel like I'm treated as well here as I would be at the home of one of my family members. The staff are friendly and nice, there are lots of activities to keep me busy, and I am learning all about Camphill. I love it here!”
"My mom has also been at Camphill Ghent. We were hoping things would be as good as the place she lived in before, which was another very nice senior community. Our hopes and expectations have been exceeded by quite a bit, and it seems to be getting better all the time! Something very special and good is behind assembling a staff like the folks I have met working here. In a word, it is HEART...!"
