Growing over 2,000 pounds of fresh chemical-free fruits and vegetables, thousands of seedlings, and hundreds of native plants these gardens serve as community gathering spaces, outdoor classrooms, and an urban connection to the natural world.
Springing from a unique combination of service, education, reflection, and relationship building, our environmental retreats are the perfect opportunity for groups to participate in the daily work and life of CFET. Come work, learn, and stay at our Center for a chance to experience the progressive, environmental change occurring daily in our neighborhood.
