The Camas Roots Garden is a living learning experience that involves students in environmental stewardship, service learning, and building community connections.
CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS: We integrate garden activities with a range of learning topics such as math, science, art, literature, and nutrition.
SERVICE LEARNING: We offer students the opportunity to contribute to their community, develop a strong work ethic, and increase self-esteem.
COMMUNITYBUILDING: Our garden space welcomes and encourages people of all ages to work together, and contributes food to the community.
Camas Roots is located next to the JDZ Administration Building and involves students from preschool to high school, as well as youth in the Clark County Juvenile Justice system. Produce from the garden is eaten by students, donated to the Inter-faith Treasure House food bank, and, occasionally, sold at the Camas Farmerís Market.
