Volunteer

Urban Roots is grateful for all of our wonderful volunteers who help us with a variety of tasks, from farm work to community events. We have opportunities for everyone!
 

Weekly Volunteer Mornings
Volunteers are welcome most Tuesday and Thursday morning from 8:30-11:30.  No RSVP required for individuals and groups smaller than five; groups larger than five must email volunteer@urbanrootsatx.org.  Check here for an updated calendar of opportunities.

Community Volunteer Saturdays
On select Saturdays, Youth Farm Interns lead volunteers through the tasks for the day and talk about their experience in our program.  Space is limited, so an RSVP is required to attend.  Check here for an updated calendar of opportunities.

Corporate Team Building Days

Share a day on the farm with your co-workers! Urban Roots offers Corporate Team Building days that bring groups of co-workers together on our urban farm to serve their community and increase group cohesion in the process. During Corporate Team Building Days, Urban Roots staff will lead your group in team-building activities, educational games, a farm tour, and agricultural work.  For information on Corporate Volunteer Days, click here.

Other Opportunities

Urban Roots is always seeking individuals with certain specialized skills to serve as consultants and provide services as needed for the program. Our farm has a lot of different moving parts (literally!), and we need you to help us keep them going! We are looking for carpenters, welders, mechanics, electricians, plumbers, and AC/Heating Technicians. If you have one of the skills listed above or another specialized skill that you would like to share with us, we would love to hear from you! Please contact us at volunteer@urbanrootsatx.org for more information on how to help.
