Help Lauren Seed Our Future

Lauren CircleWhat grows on a farm? We believe kids do.

Lauren Johnson, Board Member

Fresh air, a real farm, tasting veggies straight from the field – that’s part of what makes our work special. Teachers love the opportunity to provide their students learning opportunities in a living classroom. I’m part of Sauvie Island Center because more children need the chance to get on a real farm to learn where  healthy food comes from and gain access to hands-on science education. Our volunteers are amazing and our staff is mighty, but small. Can you make a gift of any size to give more children and teachers the Sauvie Island Center experience?

Thank you – Lauren

Help us grow.

For more than 10 years, the Sauvie Island Center has helped Portland-area children dig into the dirt and learn about food and farming through our educational programs on the Sauvie Island Organics farm and in Metro’s Howell Territorial Park.

Join the Seedling Society – our monthly giving program. Membership is the most efficient way to support our work, putting more of your money directly into farm time for children.
