About Urban Roots

Urban Roots is a nonprofit organization that use sustainable agriculture to transform the lives of young people in the community and increase access to healthy food in Austin.

Founded in 2007 as a program of YouthLaunch, they became an independent non-profit in the Fall of 2011. Urban Roots provides paid internships to youth (ages 14-17) to work on the farm. They set a goal of growing 30,000 pounds of produce, with 40% of that being donated to local soup kitchens and food pantries. The other 60% is sold at farmers’ markets (and at in.gredients!) and through their CSA.
