Celebrating Regional Partnerships

The purpose of the evening was to allow community partners the space to strengthen partnerships and develop new ones. The idea for this gathering was developed in Capital Roots' 5-year strategic plan. One of seven pillars of the plan is Community Collaboration - where we look to build authentic and dynamic relationships with a broad range of partners throughout the Capital Region and its 11-county food shed. This Mixer was one way to encourage our partners from the many sectors we work in to meet, connect and hopefully build future collaborations. Attendees came from many different sectors - health care, social service, transportation, food access, land trusts, community development, business chambers and more. We look forward to hosting these bi-annual gatherings to help facilitate more community collaboration!
