Kick Off Spring Fun with Urban Roots!

Get your green thumbs ready to join us this Saturday, April 22nd,  for our annual Earth Day volunteer event! Spring planting is right around the corner, and we need your help! We’ll kick off the day in the gardens by shoveling compost, raking, and planting, and we’ll end the day enjoying a picnic lunch. You’ll be able to plant your own tomato plant to bring home as a reminder of a fulfilling day giving back to our community. RSVP on our website, or email

Join us on Saturday, May 13th  for our Urban Roots Garden Volunteer day! We need help prepping our six urban garden plots for the bountiful summer season. Get your hands dirty raking, weeding, planting, harvesting, and much more. Come have some fun in the gardens with the people who make Urban Roots great, learn a few gardening tricks and enjoy a healthy snack! Sign-up on our website or email for more details.
