About Commodore Perry Estate + Urban Roots
Commodore Perry Estate, Auberge Resorts Collection
We strive to create exceptional experiences that enrich the lives of our guests, our team members and the community at large. Reimagined by internationally renowned designer Ken Fulk, this private retreat brings a new level of contemporary glamour and whimsical soul to Austin. A modern interpretation of a residential estate from yesteryear, these picturesque grounds offer a welcoming 10-acre setting in the heart of the city. It's the beginning of something special.
Urban Roots provides today’s young leaders with paid opportunities to grow food, learn new skills and make a difference in their community. Volunteers on our farm can expect to get their hands dirty and help us get work done. Since Urban Roots interns are the ones leading volunteers through challenging farm work, they receive a unique opportunity to grow their skills in public speaking and project management.
