George Corrin

David Clement – 

It was Carl who invited George Corrin to attend a Circle Conference. I shall always remember how, at the end of the conference, he got up and thanked the Circle for inviting him, saying his life would never be the same again. George, a very intelligent man, had opted out of “civilisation” and lived on a small holding with his wife in mid-Wales saying he wanted to bring up his children on healthy foods and true human values. On Carl’s moving up to Camphill Scotland and later becoming one of the pioneers of Botton Village, we asked George if he would be our consultant; so began a long and most fruitful collaboration.
