CFET needs you all more than ever.

Become a partner in the good work that we have been doing these past 10 years. Invest in us today, on November 28th, #GivingTuesday, and whenever you shop on Amazon by picking CFET as your charity at smile.amazon.com. We need you!
CFET manages about one acre of growing space at five locations in Waterfront South. Growing over 2,000 pounds of fresh chemical-free fruits and vegetables, thousands of seedlings, and hundreds of native plants these gardens serve as community gathering spaces, outdoor classrooms, and an urban connection to the natural world.
Springing from a unique combination of service, education, reflection, and relationship building, our environmental retreats are the perfect opportunity for groups to participate in the daily work and life of CFET. Come work, learn, and stay at our Center for a chance to experience the progressive, environmental change occurring daily in our neighborhood.
Eco Interns is an intensive job-training program for youth ages 14-19, which uses urban gardening, cooking, and entrepreneurship as a vehicle to develop leadership capabilities among youth. If you're a young person looking for employment in Camden please read more and contact us with any questions!
