Directions to the Urban Roots Farm:

The Urban Roots farm is located in East Austin near the intersection of Bolm Road and 183.  We recommend following the driving directions below as Mapquest and Google maps often have trouble with the location of the farm and the fact that 183 is a split highway.  (The land where the farm is currently located has been called Oasis Gardens and Hands of the Earth in previous years)

Due to ongoing construction on highway 183, travel to the farm may take longer than anticipated. Please allow ample time for your commute.

Please check for road closures & detours prior to traveling out to the farm: 183 South Construction Project
