Volunteering at Urban Roots is a unique experience. We offer you the opportunity to make a difference in your community, empower young leaders, and learn about our sustainable local urban farm. Our goal is to offer everyone that steps on to our 3.5 acre farm an opportunity to grow!

No experience required. Our young leaders are prepared to teach you what they have learned while completing one of our youth programs. Our farm needs volunteers to plant, cultivate, and harvest fruits and vegetables. We do require that you have an open-mind and are ready to receive instruction from our youth leaders.

We invite you to step away from your daily life and visit our farm, located 15 minutes from Austin’s downtown. You will soak up the sun, get a little muddy, and help support our cause. To support our mission, 60% of the produce is sold at farmers' markets and the wholesale market. The other 40% is donated to local hunger relief organizations to get fresh food into the hands of those in need.

Urban Roots Farm, 7651 Delwau Ln, AUSTIN, TX 78725, US

Mission Statement

We INSPIRE, ENGAGE, and NOURISH Community

Description

Urban Roots offers a unique opportunity that other organizations cannot. We use food and farming to transform the lives of young people and inspire, engage, and nourish the community. We encourage young people to get involved with their community and for the community to get involved with us. At the farm, our youth not only learn skills and knowledge about farming and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but also experience the impact of community involvement and build strong relationships with other inspired interns and volunteers. This philosophy extends to the market, our community service work, Urban Roots events, and outward to the community.
