Cam is the best !!!!!!!!! Not just farming, but care giver to all the children at Forest Ave. School where she is needed all the time. She along with so many (teachers, facilities management, volunteers and students) who built this garden made it a beautiful place..

Cam is much more than a teacher/farmer. Her positive influence on Middletown's children has been consistent during my 13 years of involvement with the schools. We are lucky to have professionals like Mrs. Ventura working on behalf of our children.
