Urban Roots is a nonprofit that provides paid internships to youth on the East Side of Saint Paul. Youth interns develop leadership, entrepreneurial, and life skills through our Market Garden, Conservation, and Cook Fresh Programs.
Often referred to as a hidden gem by visitors, the Rivoli Bluff Farm and Restoration Site is our largest growing site for food distribution. The site also includes bee hives, a gravel bed tree nursery, community gardens, fruit tree orchard, and a Children’s Garden.
