This week Constance is sitting down with Max Elliot, Executive Director of Urban Roots.


Max and Constance talk about the impact of gardening on youth development, and also discuss their favorite vegetables. Urban Roots' mission is to use food and farming to transform the lives of young people and inspire, engage, and nourish the community. As the only farm-based youth leadership organization in Austin, Urban Roots has been empowering youth and nourishing community for more than 10 years. Urban Roots started in 2008 with just 15 teenagers and one field as a project of another youth development organization, eventually becoming an independent nonprofit in 2011. On a 3.5 acre farm in East Austin, they serve teens and young adults through paid internships that focus not just on farming, but also on their growth as leaders and good citizens.
