Urban Roots, a St. Paul, MN-based metropolitan non-profit established in 1969 has had a deep run in building vibrant local communities through youth-focused quadruple-bottom line: organizational sustainability, youth-focused education, environmental conservation techniques and knowledge, and training programs. Over the course of their 44-year existence the organization has been instrumental in promoting their brand of social entrepreneurship by developing the skills and capacity of St. Paul youth between the ages of 14-18 and their families to practice ecologically-efficient stewardship of natural resources, entrepreneurship, healthy eating habits and sustainable community agriculture. Last year alone the organization reached nearly 1,400 youth with education and training classes. We salute their efforts to build vibrant, sustainable communities one young person at a time!
