The mission of the Camp Washington Urban Farm (CWUF) is to increase access to locally produced food for residents of Camp Washington area food desert. Our vision is to transform an underutilized urban space into an urban farm to provide greenery, produce natural food, grow community-wide partnerships, and foster principles of teamwork through teaching, working, harvesting, and, eating.
Chartered February 1988. We hold G.E.D. and tutoring classes two nights a week. Our instructor is Anne Skove. We are establishing a Saturday in Camp adult education series in 2015 to offer voice training, writing, and other topics.

The Camp Washington Community Board, Inc. is a development corporation founded in 1975 that specializes in saving, rehabbing, and selling single-family houses in Camp. These houses have been abandoned, foreclosed, or in terrible shape. The community board puts these houses back on line, first by completely renovating the homes, and, then, by finding good homeowners to live in them.
