Capital City Farm

Following its first year of production in 2016, Capital City Farm was recognized for its innovative approach to urban agriculture with the 2016 New Jersey Future ‘Smart Growth Award’ and the 2017 ‘Community Impact Award’ from the New Jersey Redevelopment Authority. Created under the leadership of D&R Greenway Land Trust in partnership with an advisory group of seven Trenton-based organizations, D&R Greenway has now transitioned farm management to the Garden State Agrihood Project, a new nonprofit who will continue to operate Capital City Farm. As the new leadership welcomes the new decade, the plan is to build upon the uniqueness of this urban farm, once referred to as two blighted acres next to the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK). The hundreds of volunteers who have worked on the farm have witnessed their labor of love evolve into a treasured property that epitomizes our Garden State. Leaders are currently seeking additional financial support.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before and after photos show that turning a trash-strewn, neglected parcel of land into a colorful, producing farm has transformed this area into an inspirational place for all who live in and pass through this corner of Trenton.

The Garden State Agrihood Project is in need of funders and volunteers. It welcomes corporate work days during the farm season to provide garden maintenance, produce distribution, site improvements, and streetscape improvements.
