We’ve been in Saint Paul building community capacity and setting up youth for success for 20 years!

 Urban Roots, formerly Community Design Center of Minnesota, was incorporated in 1969. Over the years, we have provided a range of community development services in Minneapolis, Saint Paul and southern Minnesota, including architecture, urban planning, economic development and organizational development—with a common thread of empowerment, engagement and innovation. We have operated our food and environmental programs on the East Side of Saint Paul since 1996, engaging thousands of youth in education, training, and work projects that provide service to the community, develop young leaders and improve health and the environment. In 2017, we reached nearly 3,600 community members through classes, tours, and hands-on activities.
