About this business
From Our Editors
The Urban Roots program places active youth ages 14 to 17 in the role of paid "farm interns," in which they are responsible for the bounty of a 3.5-acre farm in East Austin. Sixty percent of the farm interns' sustainably grown harvests is sold at farmers' markets and farm stands—with all proceeds reinvested into the program—and the remaining 40% is donated to local hunger-relief programs. Though produce and prices vary depending on the season and other market prices, green-thumbed growers typically have fresh carrots ($3.50/bundle), radishes ($2.50), collard greens ($3/bundle), okra ($4/pound), spinach ($8/pound), basil/dill ($3/bundle), and much more.
