Sauvie Island Centerhttp://www.sauvieislandcenter.org
The Sauvie Island Center increases food, farm and environmental literacy in the community by providing hands-on educational field trips for elementary school children. The trips, which take place on the Sauvie Island Organics farm and on the grounds of the 120 acre Howell Territorial Park managed by Metro, offer a rich and unique opportunity for Portland elementary school students to visit and explore a real, working farm. Volunteer Farm Educators are essential to the success of our program! Our trained educators are asked to commit to leading a minimum of 5 field trips during the season. As a Sauvie Island Center volunteer you will: Gain experience in place-based education, interpretation and gardening; Spend your days outside on beautiful Sauvie Island; Be a part of a dynamic and energetic team of educators; Taste fresh produce from Sauvie Island Organics farm; Enjoy spreading the seeds of knowledge to local youth.
