Join us for a day of fun and learning at Family Fun on the Farm day. School is out for the day and you're invited to Sauvie Island Center's Family Farm Day on Friday, October 9th from 10 am to noon. We'll explore the 16-acre Sauvie Island Organics farm and the grounds of Howell Territorial Park while learning about food, farming and the land. Our staff will guide you and your family through an exploration of our curriculum, designed for elementary school-aged children, including:

  • Soil Exploration. Dig in and learn about healthy soil.
  • Seed to Harvest. Plant, tend and harvest the Grow Lunch Garden.
  • Healthy Snacks. Taste fresh veggies that you can use at home to create yummy snacks!
  • Plant Parts Investigation. Explore the farm and plants we can eat.
  • Wildlife & Food web. Who else has been foraging on the farm?
  • Pollination Station. Meet these hard-working farm friends.

The event is free, but pre-registration is requested.
