Description

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’” - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Join Urban Roots’ youth leaders to answer that question in service to the community. We will celebrate Dr. King’s legacy with two special community volunteer mornings. Experience not required, we’ll show you everything you need to know when you arrive!

Volunteer with Urban Roots to make a difference in your community, connect with local youth leaders, and dig in on a local, urban farm! You’re guaranteed to have a unique experience that allows you to get away from the busyness of daily life without travelling too far from Austin's downtown. You will have a chance to plant, cultivate, or harvest sustainably grown fruits and vegetables and be inspired by Urban Roots youth leaders. 60% of the produce our volunteers help us grow is sold at the farmer’s market and wholesale to support our mission, and 40% is donated to local hunger relief partners to get fresh food into the hands of those who need it. Come dig in with us!

For groups:

***GROUPS SPOTS ARE LIMITED***

In the spirit of community we are limiting large groups and keeping the schedule as open to individuals as possible -- thank you for understanding. If you have questions, please send an email to volunteer@urbanrootsatx.org . We will follow-up with you ASAP.
