Each fall, Capital Roots invites the finest chefs in the Region to showcase their talent at our Autumn Evening in the Garden gala at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy. These talented culinary artists donate their time to this evening of food and friends, while 10 of our region’s most unique beverage purveyors pour samples of their fair to compliment these fall dishes. It’s a night not many want to miss.
But the night simply wouldn’t be complete without our farms. Nearly 40 farms from across the Capital Region graciously donate product from their fields, barns, and facilities to their partner chefs, including everything from produce, meat, and cheese to syrup, jam, and milk. The chefs then create exquisite dishes from which our guests get to sample throughout the evening. It’s a strolling supper at its finest!
Aside from being one of Capital Roots’ major fundraising events of the year, this is our opportunity to highlight the farms who are feeding our regional economy, a job we take very seriously at Capital Roots because it rests at the core of our mission: to provide all people in our region with access to fresh food. Without our farms, none of us would eat. We are grateful for their work and even more grateful for the partnerships we have created with them throughout the last 40 years.
We hope you can join us for the 10th annual Autumn Evening in the Garden. All proceeds from this event benefit our food access and urban growing programs at Capital Roots. You won’t want to miss it!
