6th Annual Tour de Farm

Over the past six years, Tour de Farm has become a transformational evening of giving that makes Urban Roots possible. This event started as a Bar Mitzvah project (Thank you Eli!) and evolved into a powerful fundraiser to support this work to empower youth and nourish the community. Urban Roots’ Tour de Farm is the most unique non-profit event in Austin, combining our farm-fresh produce and the city’s top chefs to raise money for Austin’s young leaders.

Through this event, we were reminded that Urban Roots is so much more than a farm– Urban Roots is a beautiful community of people working together to empower youth and nourish each other. This year, Tour de Farm will gather more than 300 supporters at Fair Market on April 25, 2017 with the goal to raise over 
$150,000 to grow and nurture these amazing young people.

This event is invite-only, but for more information about sponsoring this event please contact Emily Mares, Development Director, at emily@urbanrootsatx.org or 512-750-8019.
