About Us
Started in 2009, Capital Roots’ Produce Project is a job training and skills building program that engages youth from Troy High School in the year-round production and sale of organic vegetables, fruits, and flowers. With help from the program’s Farmer and Educator, students manage crops from seed through sale, while earning a stipend, academic credit, and a weekly food share. The farm, located on two acres of land overlooking downtown Troy, provides youth the opportunity to gain important skills while working to bring healthy and nutritious produce to the community. Our goal is not only to provide educational and enrichment opportunities for youth in Troy, but also to connect our students with the wider community.
