Here are a few thoughts about the retreat:

I like the name "Swords into Plowshares." I like the idea behind it.  In a modern context, it suggests that we would take military hardware and convert it to agricultural uses, feeding the hungry and impoverished.

Perhaps "Swords into Plowshares" doesn't match the goals of the team, but it's certainly a noble goal.
