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 the spring. Opportunities include prepping garden beds, laying compost, weeding, harvesting and small construction projects. Volunteer shift times are on Wednesday afternoons and Thursday mornings and afternoons. Go to our website at urbanrootsmn.org/volunteer to sign up for a shift. We have some limited flexibility with these days and times, so please inquire via email if you need.
Optimal Group Size: 10 to 30 people
Time Commitment: 3 hours
We supply tools, gloves, water and lots of fun!
