7th 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. Tour de Farm 2017 was a gathering of supporters at Fair Market in April where we raised $136,000 to grow and nurture these amazing young people.
