Camden Children's Garden dinner CANCELLED for Sep. 14
Camden Children's Garden
Tue, Sep 14, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
Tickets: $95 donation
Camden Children’s Garden announced today that it had to cancel its planned four-course, gourmet dinner and benefit prepared for your exquisite dining pleasure on Tuesday, September 14th by South Jersey’s most talented chefs.
“Dine under the Stars” was planned to be a fundraiser amidst the lovely, lush greenery of the Camden Children's Garden.
A portion of the $95/person (all inclusive)proceeds were much needed to support Camden Children’s Garden, a non-profit, membership-based, educational and environmental organization coping with a complete cut in state funding. Your donation is still much needed to support the important work of the Camden Children's Garden and its programs that educate families about gardening, fresh food, nutrition and the environment.
The Camden City Garden Club, Inc. was established in 1985. The Club is a non-profit (501) (c) (3) environmental and educational organization. Originally formed for the purpose of assisting Camden City residents with community gardening, the Club's programs soon expanded in 1989 to include the in-school Grow Lab Program and the Youth-at-Risk Job Training and Employment Program. The organization’s community gardening program has been expanded to include community greening and beautification projects as well as urban farming.
In 1993 the Club began planning the Camden Children’s Garden. The Garden opened in July 1999 as a four-acre “horticultural playground.” Today, the organization also provides both on-site and distance learning educational programs covering over 30 available lessons, each aligned to the NJ Standards.
Camden Children's Garden is designed for children and families. It is a special place to explore and discover the natural world. The four-acre garden provides horticultural experiences for creative and imaginative play.
The Garden includes three indoor attractions, the popular Philadelphia Eagles Four Seasons Butterfly House, the tropical exhibit, Plaza de Aibonito and Ben Franklin’s Secret Workshop. Other exhibits include a Dinosaur Garden, Maze, Tree House, Picnic Garden, CityScapes Garden, Storybook Gardens and the Fitness Garden. Visitors can round out their visit by riding the Carousel, Train and the Spring Butterfly Ride.
Open Friday – Sunday and Thursday by reservation. The Garden is located across the Delaware River from Philadelphia and adjacent to the Adventure Aquarium, Susquehanna Bank Center, Battleship New Jersey and Riversharks Baseball. The Children's Garden is easily accessible by car, bus, RiverLink Ferry from Penn's Landing, the PATCO Hi-Speedline, or the River Line train. Parking is conveniently located in the Waterfront Garage.
