Boys & Girls Clubs of the Capital Area received a generous grant from Farm Credit Northeast AgEnhancement to support our BGCCA’s Freight Farm and Outdoor Garden Programs. We are proud to partner with Farm Credit Northeast AgEnhancement to create opportunities for new entrants into the agriculture industry and provide leadership development for these youth!
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Capital Area (BGCCA), CDPHP, SEFCU, and Brown’s Brewing Company introduce Freight Farm, an innovative new way to fight food insecurity, teach children, and generate revenue through high-tech hydroponic farming. The Freight Farm was donated by SEFCU and the teen program is supported by a grant from CDPHP.
