About

We operate a youth-run urban farming, cooking and conservation program in which teens are paid to carry out meaningful work in their community (East St Paul). In the Spring & Fall we recruit volunteer groups to engage in our work with our staff and youth participants at our farm and public park sites.

Urban Roots is looking for eager volunteer groups to work in our gardens late summer & fall. Opportunities include prepping garden beds, harvesting, weeding, garden tear town and small construction projects. We have flexible scheduling from September - November.

Optimal Group Size: 10 to 30 people

Time Commitment: 2 to 5 hours

We supply tools, gloves, water and lots of fun!
