If healthy living, the outdoors and learning where food comes from are priorities in your household, check out the sustainable urban farming initiative Urban Roots. Children as young as 10 can volunteer with an adult at this beautiful 3.5-acre sustainable farm in East Austin, which grows a whopping 30,000 pounds of produce per year—nearly half of which is donated to local soup kitchens and food pantries in need. Young participants gain valuable experience in crop management, harvesting, processing and irrigation, so a real passion for getting down and dirty is a must. To check availability, visit urbanrootsatx.org.
