Prepping Garden Beds

Our Market Garden program grows vegetables in six urban plots on the east side of St. Paul. The gardens allow us to teach youth important job skills, address food insecurity on the East Side, and sell produce to support our vital programming. In the spring, help us prep our garden plots for the growing season. In the summer, help us weed and maintain our gardens, and in the fall, we’ll put our gardens to bed for the winter.

There are a variety of shifts for this opportunity. Please visit to see dates and times and sign up.

About Urban Roots


1110 Payne Ave, St. Paul, MN 55130, US

Mission Statement

Urban Roots is a Saint Paul organization whose mission is to cultivate and empower youth through nature, healthy food, and community.


Urban Roots, formerly Community Design Center of Minnesota, was incorporated in 1969 as a 501(c)3. Over the years, we have provided a range of community development services with a common thread of empowerment, engagement and innovation. Since 1996, Urban Roots has provided paid internships to youth on the East Side of Saint Paul. Youth interns develop leadership, entrepreneurial, and life skills through our Market Garden, Conservation, and Cook Fresh Programs. Each year, up to 75 youth interns, ages 14-24, participate in our progressive, tiered programming, connecting to one another and to the world around them.
