Empower Youth. 
Nourish Community.

SO MUCH MORE THAN A FARM

Urban Roots cultivates leadership skills through food and farming to transform the lives of young people and inspire, engage, and nourish the community.
 
Update: For the safety of our youth, our staff, and our dedicated volunteers, Urban Roots will continue to wear masks and require those who are on the farm to wear masks.

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.
VOLUNTEER

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.
