Planting Seed, Planting Stories (Matching Opportunity before 12/31!)

We grow so much more than produce. Because of you, Urban Roots is a place where stories grow.

Qwynci is 17 years old and in her second internship at Urban Roots. Last summer, she shared her story of growth at a community lunch on our farm. During her speech, Qwynci shared her vision to create a garden at her school. Someone in the audience that day was so inspired by her vision that they made a generous pledge to directly support Qwynci’s garden dream!


“I had the opportunity to create a community garden at my school just because someone believed in me… That and all of the other great things I have been able to do because of Urban Roots has been amazing.”

Your support makes amazing stories like this possible for our young leaders every day through paid youth internships throughout the year. And now more than ever, these stories are important because they inspire a better world.

Will you consider a special year-end gift to ensure we can create more transformational experiences and stories for young people like Qwynci in 2019? Your gift will be MATCHED by the Terry and Regina Armstrong Family Foundation up to $25,000 when made by December 31st!

Thank you for planting the seeds of stories that nourish our community in so many ways. From our Urban Roots family to yours, we wish you a happy holiday season!
