We make roughly 900 plots available in 55 community gardens, conveniently located throughout Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady and southern Saratoga counties. Chances are we have a plot available in your neighborhood! Anyone with an interest in growing their own food and flowers can sign up for a plot in one of our community gardens. Just imagine the possibilities!


Learn how to Go Organic!

All of Capital Roots' community gardens are managed organically. This helps us maintain the quality of our soil and the health of our gardeners. You don’t have to spend a lot of money or know how to garden organically – we’ll teach you! Whether you’re a novice or a master gardener, we’ll help you develop the skills and connect you to the resources you need to make the most out of your plot. Capital Roots offers dozens of gardening and culinary classes each year, provides seeds free of charge to all Capital Roots gardeners and sells unique seedling varieties at two plant sales per year.
