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

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.
OUR IMPACT

SUPPORT THE FUTURE OF URBAN ROOTS

Urban Roots Farm is currently closed to the public. Since the COVID-19 Crisis put an immediate stop to our youth programming and volunteering on the farm, we are focused on growing food to deliver to our hunger relief partners and those who are food insecure. Stay tuned for more updates.
