SO MUCH MORE THAN A FARM

Urban Roots works with youth leaders to grow fresh food and build a community dedicated to achieving food equity.
 

empower

Urban Roots provides today’s young leaders with paid opportunities to grow food, learn new skills, and make a difference in their community. If you are a young person who’s excited to grow your leadership skills and get your hands dirty, or if you know one, join us!
YOUTH FARM PROGRAMS

Engage

Volunteers on our farm can expect to get their hands dirty and help us get work done. Since Urban Roots interns are the ones leading volunteers through challenging farm work, they receive a unique opportunity to grow their skills in public speaking and project management.

Nourish

Here at Urban Roots, we believe that everyone can make a difference. Each year, young people, volunteers, and community leaders unite on our farm. Together, we grow over 25,000 pounds of fresh foods, and donate 40% of this to 7 hunger relief agencies across Austin.
OUR IMPACT

URBAN ROOTS FEATURED BY CBS NEWS & GODADDY

A huge thanks to CBS News and GoDaddy for featuring Urban Roots in their recent article and video, entitled “An urban farm’s quest to survive and thrive.” We were thrilled to be a part of this project and are so thankful to have had the opportunity to share how we have been impacted by the COVID-19 Crisis and pivoted during these challenging times.

Gratitude and Growth

We at Urban Roots have a lot to be grateful and thankful for this year. It’s been a true year of growth, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our Urban Roots community, from each volunteer, donor, youth, food access partner, and staff member who altogether create the heart of what we […]

  • It’s #URFarmFactFriday, folks! Our Farm Fact for this week is that our farm team have been hard at work expanding and experimenting with what we grow🌱. They’ve pushed the traditional number of crops we grow, from12 to 14, to 56 varieties across 27 different crops this autumn season!⁠
⁠
This allows for us to experiment further with what crops and varieties work best. It also  increases both our biodiversity and crop resilience. Here’s to shaking things up in ways we haven’t before!
  • It’s was a busy for our youth last month👨🏽‍🌾! They’ve been farming up a storm while leading volunteers to get our crops in the ground for our upcoming harvest season, spent time volunteering with some of our partners, and got up to some Halloween festivities! Learn more by following the linkin.bio.
  • The farm team has been working hard to ensure all of our veggies are in the ground, and that they’re as healthy and hearty as can be! They worked on pest management, and adding compost to our soil to make sure the crops get as nutritious of soil as possible. We’re excited to share our harvest with our food access partners! Learn more about it by following the linkin.bio.
  • We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve begun our fall #harvestseason 🥕! Our youth have also been getting their hands in the dirt (literally) as they worked with compost we recently received from our friends at Organics by Gosh (thank you guys!), helping us be more sustainable and making our veggies even better. We’re happy to announce our Annual Impact Report as well, which outlines what we’ve accomplished this past fiscal year! Read our newsletter by following the linkin.bio to learn more about what we’ve been up to!
  • Apply soon, before the form closes TOMORROW, November 4th! Take part in how our community can prevent spikes in food insecurity and remove challenges with food distribution during future disasters. Get involved in Austin/Travis County’s first food plan and join the Community Advisory Committee. Complete the form in the linkin.bio to share how you’d like to be involved.
