Meet Moby - the Mobile Classroom

The 2017 Mobile Classroom partnerships were a great success and we had an amazing season! As fall becomes winter, we are so thankful to take time to reflect on this program and use everything we learned to make it better, more effective, and more sustainable.

Stay tuned for lots of exciting details about the Mobile Classroom opportunities for 2018's growing season!


Full Season Garden Support.

When people want to have community or educational gardens they usually have three very important assets when it comes to growing food on site: interest, people, & land (even if very small).

At Urban Roots we recognize those assets as a solid foundation for cultivating something more together & can support each indivdual community with training, planning materials, on-site consult hours, and more!
