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

  • and more!

Fill out the form below to get started.

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!
