The Sauvie Island Center provides Portland area children with unique educational experiences on a working organic vegetable farm, helping them make the connection between the food they eat, farming and the land.
Our programs include school field trips, Summer Farm Camps, and Family Farm Days, and we engage children from around the Metro region. When children participate in Sauvie Island Center programs, they plant, tend, harvest and taste vegetables fresh from the farm. Engagement in our programs leads to more favorable attitudes toward vegetables at school and at home. In this way, we are helping to build a healthier community.
