Eileen Borland's Passing
The board of trustees and the staff of CFET are saddened to announce the death of Eileen Borland, one of the founders of CFET and a long serving member of the Board of Trustees. Visitation will be from 10AM to 11AM, on Saturday, June 17, 2017, at Sacred Heart Church, on the corner of S. Broadway & Ferry Ave. in Camden, NJ. A Mass of Resurrection will follow at 11AM. Our condolences to Eileen's husband, John, their children and their grandchildren, and all of her many friends in the Camden City community. She will be sorely missed!
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.
