Urban Roots has entered our harvest time for the spring season as we approach summer. We’ve been able to share more with our food access partners, though we’ve been fighting the unexpected heat and pests. We’ve been harvesting onions, cilantro, radish, and spinach, and are expecting to harvest potatoes, beets, and carrots soon. Cucumbers, squash, and tomatoes have also been harvested, and are being reseeded to continue throughout the remainder of spring and through summer.
We’re happy to be continuing shares to Go! Austin/Vamos! Austin and Ghisallo, as well as to FarmShare Austin’s Fresh for Less Program. We’ll also be partnering with Vivent Health, Out Youth, Street Youth and Manos de Cristo throughout the season!
