#BestpassGives: Capital Roots Produce Farm

On August 15, 2019, 15 Bestpass employees pitched in on tasks such as weeding, mulching and harvesting in support of the Capital Roots program, which provides Troy, New York high school students with hands-on horticulture education and job readiness training on an urban farm.

Bestpass has a longstanding relationship with Capital Roots, including sponsoring toll for the organization's Veggie Mobile and other fleet vehicles as they distribute fresh produce throughout the Capital Region. 

Check out the photos that were taken on our volunteer visit:
