Help raise money for Capital Roots.

Think warm thoughts—springtime is approaching!

While we are sad to see our returning gardener registrations come to a close, we are relishing in the opportunities we had to check in with many friends who have been involved with the Community Gardens program for a number of years. One check-in in particular was a perfect reminder of how critical this program is to the health and well-being of our neighbors.

"To me it is a godsend, providing strength for my personal life and a... great lift for my own struggling heart and soul," said Peggy, a Knickerbocker Park Community Gardener who has been with the program since 2013. "Thank you for providing this great opportunity for all in this area." At Capital Roots, we take pride in providing fresh, affordable, green spaces for all. But what we care about most are the people we touch.

We’ve started taking seat reservations for orientation sessions—so get in touch with our Community Gardens program team soon to reserve your seat!

I LOVE the Veggie Mobile, and look forward to the wonderful people that work there. I especially love the recipes, and have one to share today - "bacon" made from EGG PLANT!

My 2 favorite things about the veggie mobile visits to 700 South Pearl Street every Tuesday are:
1- when the Albany South Enders come out to play- more and more neighbors join us each week!
2-when I h...ear my staff still taking about it the next day while sharing strawberries they scored.

Can wait to see what next Tuesday will bring.

Thanks Capital Roots for all your great programs.
