Share your skills with Urban Roots

Urban Roots is always seeking individuals with certain specialized skills to serve as consultants and provide services as needed for the program. Our farm has a lot of different moving parts (literally!), and we need you to help us keep them going! We are looking for carpenters, welders, mechanics, electricians, plumbers, and AC/Heating Technicians.

If you have one of the skills listed above or another specialized skill that you would like to share with us, we would love to hear from you! Please contact us for more information on how to help.

We welcome photographers who are interested in taking pictures of our youth in action or our produce. Our farm offers a natural setting where youth don’t just grow vegetables; they cultivate a community. We think this makes for some incredible photographs, but come see for yourself!

Student Internships:

Because we are a relatively small program, Urban Roots has a limited capacity for supporting internships. If you are interested in being an Urban Roots Intern, please contact us to see if there are spaces available. Currently, there are no internship positions available until Spring 2016. Please check back in the fall for more information.
