Urban Roots Volunteer Thursday
NOTE: EACH VOLUNTEER MUST PERSONALLY REGISTER! One registration required per person.
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!
***GROUPS NEED AN ACCESS CODE TO REGISTER***
We can accomodate one group of up to 15 people on every public volunteer day. Expect your group to be folded in with other individuals for the day’s work. Groups spots are limited, so please inquire as far ahead as possible. Please fill out the following: Group Volunteer Request Form
We will follow-up with you ASAP to arrange your group volunteer event date and provide instructions for group registration.
