volunteer at local organic farms!

Hi all, 
Thanks to everyone who came out Saturday! Pictures coming soon!

If you're interested in volunteering at a local Austin organic farm, here are two that could definitely use your help within the next few weeks/months. 

urban roots
Urban Roots is a youth development program that uses sustainable agriculture as a means to transform the lives of young people and increase the access of healthy food in Austin.
volunteer times are Tuesday and Thursday mornings in April and May
to find out more, check out
to volunteer, email or you can sign up online at 

green gate farms
Green Gate Farms, located only 8 miles east of downtown, produces healthy, nutritious food just minutes from the heart of the city.  The farm is open to anyone interested in connecting with agriculture and where food comes from. Volunteers are needed particularly during the next several weeks, as now is prime planting/gardening season. No experience is necessary, and you can work with animals or gardening. I volunteer there regularly and would highly recommend going to help out! Email to volunteer, or visit their website for more info.
