Lieutenant Governor Visits the Urban Grow Center



Capital Roots had the honor of welcoming Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul to the Urban Grow Center in February. Greeted by our staff, the Lieutenant Governor took a tour around our headquarters, making stops at our Produce Market and Food Hub where we handle, pack and distribute local fruits and vegetables. Capital Roots CEO Amy Klein shared the latest plans with the Lieutenant Governor about the growth of the Urban Grow Center. Faculty and our Board of Director’s, along with longtime donors and media friends joined to see two impactful women coming together to discuss great change happening in the Capital Region. We were so grateful to the  Lieutenant Governor Hochul for taking the time to stop by our facility and learn about our work and future expansion.
