We Grow On Love And Donations

Because of your support, Urban Roots is celebrating 10 years of empowering youth and nourishing the community. This year we aim to give more than $115,000 directly to 70+ young people through paid internships on our farm — which means we hope to distribute in just one season more than a quarter of what we’ve done in the entire past decade. But we can’t do it without your help.

Make a one-time or monthly gift here now!

Urban Roots also welcomes direct donations by mail. Please send your gift to:
