Spring Volunteering at Urban Roots Farm

Thursday, May 18th, 2023 from 9:00am to 11:30am (CT)

About

Come get your hands dirty with us as we grow thousands of pounds of food for our community!

NOTE: EACH VOLUNTEER MUST BE REGISTERED INDIVIDUALLY BEFORE ARRIVING TO THE FARM. Minors must be registered by a parent or legal guardian. 

We invite you to step away from your daily life and visit our farms, each located minutes from Austin’s downtown. You will soak up the sun, get a little muddy, and help support our cause. To support our mission, 75% of the produce is used to improve food access for our neighbors in need, and the other 25% is sold to wholesale and restaurant partners. 

Our young leaders will to teach you what you need to know to help us grow thousands of pounds of fresh food! Our farm needs volunteers to plant, cultivate, and harvest fruits and vegetables. You only need an open-mind, ready to receive instruction from our youth leaders. 

Please read the information in the registration page for our volunteer agreement and waiver. You may contact us at volunteer@urbanrootsatx.org with any questions or concerns.
