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 individual to come once, or become weekly regulars in our gardens & parks this spring! Opportunities in our market garden include prepping garden beds, laying compost, weeding, planting and small construction projects. Opportunities in conservation program include the ever-important restoration work of pulling invasives. Most shifts are Wednesday mornings from 9am-12pm, with occasional shifts on Saturdays. Go to urbanrootsmn.org/volunteer to sign up!
This shift is for individuals, accepting a maximum of 8 for eachshift.
Time Commitment: 3 to 4 hours
