Urban Roots provides paid internships to Austin youth, age 14-17, to work on their 3.5 acre urban sustainable farm in East Austin. Each year, their goal is to grow 30,000 pounds of produce with the Urban Roots community of youth, community volunteers, and staff. They donate 40% of our harvest to local soup kitchens and food pantries and sell the other 60% at farmers’ markets, through their Community Supported Agriculture Program, and wholesale.
