The Camas Roots Garden has many opportunities for community volunteers who like to work outdoors and⁄or like working with kids of all ages. We try to match volunteers to activities that meet their skills and interests, so please contact us if you would like to volunteer and we can figure out how to put you to work! We’re a fun group and get great satisfaction from engaging kids in gardening and growing food for the community.
Our vision is to be a living learning experience that involves students in environmental stewardship, service learning, and building community connections.
We build curriculum connections by integrating garden activities with a range of learning topics such as math, science, art, literature, and nutrition.
We are a site for service learning that offers students the opportunity to contribute to their community, develop a strong work ethic, and increase self-esteem.
