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
