Community involvement

Kep Gardens has built a strong relationship with the local community over several years. From attending weddings and funerals, memorial ceremonies, rice blessing ceremonies and religious celebrations at the 2 local pagodas we have met and made many Cambodian friends. Volunteers who stay at Kep Gardens have a wonderful opportunity to become involved in the local community and learn about the Cambodian culture.

Kep Gardens sponsors many local events:

Kep Water Festival – December each year.  We sponsor the Kampong Tralach village boat every year.

Boxing Tournament – special event.  Boxing is a popular sport in Cambodia.

Rice Blessing Ceremony – Every year after the rice harvest.

Jungle Marathon – Cambodian style triathlon.
