Mission Statement

To nourish healthy communities by providing access to fresh foods and green spaces for all.

Description

Capital Roots started in 1975 as a community service project of Garden Way, the former manufacturer of Troy-Bilt Lawn and Garden Equipment. Our vision for the future is of a Capital Region where every person has access to fresh, affordable healthy food.

Today Capital Roots works to reduce the impact of poor nutrition on public health in New York’s Capital Region by organizing community gardens, providing healthy food access, offering nutritional and horticultural education for all ages and coordinating urban greening programs in Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady and southern Saratoga Counties.
