volunteers make it happen
Come meet us, work with our neighbors, eat great food and see what we do. You will help with a variety of projects that support our mission and bring food growing and nutrition education to the Madison community and Grand Rapids as a whole!
We applaud the hearts of our volunteers! Without the many helpful hands, our community farm wouldn't be the place it is. We strive to offer a variety of ways for volunteers to get involved with Urban Roots so that anyone can join us as we Grow. Eat. & Learn.
Drop in and volunteer
CLOSED FOR 2017 SEASON!! Drop in hours will start again in March 2018!
We invite you to join us with no strings attached. Come check out the community farm, learn about what we do, and get to know us! Check in with an Urban Roots staff member when you arrive and we will get you going on a project.
BE A PART OF OUR TEAM
When we can, we love working with long term volunteers. You can become part of our team with a weekly commitment of 2-8 hours on a regular day(s).
We understand that life is real, vacations, pre-planned stuff, and unexpected s*%^ happens - but we welcome long term volunteers who are with us each week giving their time, talents, and energy.
We need all kinds of individuals who are ready to dig in! (get it?)
To look into a long term volunteer position, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Group Service Learning is what you are looking for! Come experience a thriving urban farm while learning, working, and eating a farm fresh meal!
