The mission of Capital District Community Gardens (CDCG) is to nourish healthy communities by providing access to fresh food and green spaces for all. To accomplish this mission, CDCG operates 48 cooperative neighborhood food gardens (serving more than 3,000 of our Region's low-income residents local families) where they are able to move toward self-sufficiency by growing their own fresh nutritious produce. In addition to our garden programs, CDCG works with communities in New York's Capital Region to implement a wide range of urban greening projects including annual street tree plantings and landscape design projects for municipalities, schools and nonprofit organizations that help to enhance our area's cities. CDCG nourishes healthy communities by operating The Veggie Mobile, which brings fresh produce, at an affordable price, into low-income, inner-city neighborhoods in our community. We also bring affordable produce into inner-city neighborhoods through the Healthy Convenience Store Initiative, which supplies fruits and vegetables to the stores where residents shop on a daily basis. We educate young people through our Produce Project and Tastes Good programs. The Produce Project teaches at-risk teens valuable skills for life and career development as they work a year-round urban farm and market and sell their produce. The Tastes Good Series teaches inner-city students in grades PreK-2 that healthy fruits and vegetables are delicious and nutritious through tastings, books, songs, and games. CDCG is dedicated to growing stronger communities by beautifying our cities, educating our young people, improving the quality of life for residents and revitalizing urban neighborhoods.
