#10yearsandgrowing: 2016-2017 Impact Report

Because of our generous community, there is so much to celebrate about the 2016-2017 season that wrapped in July. It was one of continued growth for Urban Roots– we launched a new program, served more young leaders, and distributed the highest amount of youth stipends ever! None of this would be possible without you.

This season we are thrilled to celebrate 10 years of empowering youth and nourishing community. The Urban Roots family has accomplished so much in these first 10 years, and we can’t wait to see what the next 10 bring.

June 7th: Morning Open House on the Farm

Please join us on Wednesday morning, June 7th for our next Open House at the Urban Roots Farm!

There’s no better way to start your day than among the bountiful fields of our farm. Snooze will provide the breakfast & coffee, you’ll hear a quick word from our youth leaders, and then enjoy an exclusive farm tour. We love giving you a closer look at the impact of the community’s support in our work to empower youth and nourish the community at the same time.

Please RSVP for this free event here

Here is some helpful information to help make your visit a success. Please read this thoroughly:

Please feel free to bring a friend or two with you — the more the merrier!

✓ Dress Appropriately: Everyone MUST wear closed-toe shoes. For safety reasons, those wearing opened-toe shoes will not be allowed to participate in the farm tour (and that would be such a bummer!). And there are no indoor spaces on our farm, so please dress comfortably.

✓ Location: The Urban Roots Farm is located at 7651 Delwau Ln, Austin, TX 78725. This is just off of 183, down a winding road. Please drive carefully to respect our neighbors and bicyclists. We are located right off the bike trail (please click here for a link to the map) — so we highly encourage biking over.

✓ Parking: Please park on the road outside the farm gate and walk down the driveway to the farm by the Urban Roots sign. Observe all signage and park as far onto the north shoulder of the road as possible. Please do not park in front of our neighbors’ homes or walk through their yards on your way to the farm. We value and respect their privacy and ask for your help in being good neighbors.

If you have issues finding us or any questions — give us a call at 512-750-8019.

 

We look forward to seeing you on the farm soon!
