volunteers make it happen
Come meet us, work with our neighbors, see what we do, and help with a variety of projects that bring food growing and nutrition education to Grand Rapids!
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.
As an Urban Roots volunteer, you can:
Join one of our special committees (NEW in 2018!)
Get your hands in the soil on the Community Farm
Try out turning our compost piles

Note: as we are a seasonal organization, most outdoor volunteer opportunities are wrapped up for the rest of 2018. Fill out the form to get a head-start on the 2019 season!

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