Save the Earth- remove invasives!
- A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
14 people are interested
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). During the spring, summer, and fall we recruit volunteer groups to engage in our work with our staff and youth interns at our farm and public park sites.
Urban Roots is looking for eager volunteer groups to work in our local parks! We need help with our crucial restoration work of removing invasive species and planting native trees, shrubs, and flowers. Get outside in our beautiful local green spaces while making a difference!
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 any size donation if your organization is able. This year our Conservation Program has a matching grant to buy native trees for planting. If your group is interested in tree planting, whatever you can give will be doubled and put into making healthier parks!
