Prepping Garden Beds

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, planting and small construction projects.

Optimal Group Size: 10 to 30 people

Time Commitment: 2-3 hours
Volunteer shift times are on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9-12pm or 12:30-3:30pm, or Thursdays from 4-6pm (to work with our youth interns!). We have some flexibility with these days and times, so please inquire via email if you need.

We supply tools, gloves, water and lots of fun! We appreciate donations of any size if your organization is able.

Contact to schedule your shift!
