Urban Roots

Urban Roots is a Saint Paul organization with a mission to build vibrant and healthy communities through food, conservation and youth development. We cultivate youth leaders and support healthy communities on the city’s East Side through paid internship programs that provide hands-on learning and foster critical life skills around entrepreneurial thinking, resilience and collaboration. Urban Roots experiential “earn as you learn” programs are grounded in improving urban food systems, supporting and fostering connection to Saint Paul’s parks and green spaces, and promoting active living.
