Recognizing True Grit

This Spring, we were honored to recognize an amazing individual who has gone above and beyond for this organization - Sharon Bedford. Sharon was awarded a local Jefferson Award for Public Service this month, a yearly award that recognizes the Capital Region's unsung heroes. 

Sharon is a long-time Capital Roots volunteer, a 20-year member of our Board of Directors and a local advocate for a brighter, healthier future. From lending an extra hand at our events and co-chairing committees to volunteering on the Veggie Mobile and everything in between, Sharon is always ready to get involved. If you've met her, you'll notice that she is incredibly humble, yet radiates passion in her work to provide fresh food for the people of the Capital Region. We can't thank Sharon enough for being a role model and inspiration for all in our community and for committing so deeply to the Capital Roots mission. Congratulations Sharon, and thank you for all that you do!
