Give

With every gift you make to Urban Roots, you are changing lives. When you invest in our youth and our farm, you are making a significant impact in the community through both!

Success isn’t about how much produce we grow – it’s about the lives transformed. And we couldn’t do it without you.

Please give today and help make our farm as resilient as the youth we serve.
