Community Impact Award


Capital City Farm is the new vision for the two-acre lot next to the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen. In 2011, TASK volunteers looked at this weed-filled lot and wondered what could happen there that would offer something positive to this neighborhood. In 2014, the land was purchased by the City and in 2015; the site was remediated to control toxins and prepared to become an urban farm.  Capital City Farm is an urban farm in the heart of Trenton offering access to healthy produce and is a home for wellness education, micro- enterprise development, arts and culture. Capital City Farm has been described as a green oasis that can nourish the mind, body and soul.
