Captial District Community Gardens
Have you all heard about the coolest after-school youth program in the Capital District?! The Produce Project, a program of Capital District Community Gardens, is a year-round job training program that increases employment and educational opportunity for youth from Troy High School. Students are employed year round to operate a 2.5 acre, urban, organic-produce farm under the supervision of CDCG’s staff. Students cultivate greenhouse and outdoor crops. Tomatoes, kale, eggplant, and peppers are just a few of the crops they currently have available. Stop by the Local Harvest Festival on September 23rd to meet some of the area’s youngest farmers and see what they have been growing in Troy, NY.
