Join 20 of the region's most talented chefs and 30 local growers from all over the greater Capital District for an exciting evening of seasonally fresh foods and scintillating conversation amongst chefs, farmers and friends.
CDCG is a private, non-profit organization that has been improving the Capital Region for more than 30 years. Their programs help inner-city families cut food costs by growing food locally and offering access to fresh fruits and vegetables in under served areas. To this end, CDCG currently manages 46 cooperative neighborhood food gardens throughout the Capital Region. The demand for garden space has never been greater. This year, CDCG saw a 200% increase in interest from new gardeners. CDCG also organizes annual neighborhood street tree plantings and operates The Veggie Mobile - a mobile produce market that makes fresh produce more affordable and accessible to low income, inner city residents.
