About Urban Roots

Our mission includes working with children in either their schools or at our Farm. The emergence of the pandemic and resulting school closures led us to cancel all of our Spring and Summer programming which included fieldtrips, home school enrichment, parent/child workshops, and teacher trainings. 

We’ve had to make major budget cuts and significant changes to how we serve families. It’s been an overwhelming time for this small but dedicated staff.  Urban Roots is mission driven and has created an incredible alternative to bringing hands-on educational opportunities to families in their home, but we are still making up lost revenue from cancelled programming.

Please help Urban Roots today so we can continue moving forward together and manifesting a more vibrant, healthy future than ever before.

Be entered to win special raffle prizes for the following donations:

$100- Win a case of Full Circle Compost's PUNCH:

An all-natural worm “Brew” for your plants. This high quality vermicompost is made by our family of hard-working composting worms and contains billions of beneficial microorganisms for your plants to enjoy. 

$500- Win a Juice Plus Tower Garden:

Good health starts with good habits, like eating wholesome foods.  Tower Garden systems let you easily grow your own fresh, nutrient-rich food without soil.  The new Tower Garden HOME is ideal for indoor gardening, while the Tower Garden FLEX is slightly larger and can be used indoors or outdoors.  Grow a healthier you year-round.

$1000- Win a two night getaway at The Hideaway & dinner at Vesuvio in Carmel, California: 

The wild beauty of California’s central coast is best paired with a stay in this 24-room boutique hotel in downtown Carmel. You’ll be welcomed by the warmth of Craftsman-style architecture, fireplaces, and amenities. The hotel's modern yet charming accommodations are located within strolling distance of fine restaurants and shops, and a short drive from the Monterey regional airport. This lovely package also includes dinner at lauded Italian restaurant, Vesuvio, one evening courtesy of Carmel by the Sea.
