Our summer youth program employs Camden teenagers that help manage our beautiful gardens and run our weekly farm stand as they gain valuable life skills. In addition, they are the creators of our very own Kapow! hot sauce brand. Also, be sure to ask about our community garden plots - we would love to have you join us!
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.
