School Garden Fundraisers

The Healthy Youth Program has two on-going programs to help raise funds for the school gardens we manage:

 

1) SUMMER SCHOOL GARDEN VEGGIE BOXES:

OUR SCHOOL GARDEN VEGGIE BOX SUBSCRIPTIONS ARE FULL FOR 2017

A sincere thank you to everyone who subscribed to support our school garden programs and the Corvallis High School Urban Farm Summer Interns!  We hope you enjoy this summer's boutny!

Interested in receiving a weekly box of local fruits and vegetables grown and harvested by high schoolers at school gardens in Corvallis?  Sign up and support the CHS Urban Farm Summer Internship Program! All fruits and vegetables are produced using organic methods (although not certified organic).

2) ANNUAL SPRING SCHOOL GARDEN PLANT SALE:

Thank you to all that made the 2017 School Garden Plant Sale a huge success!
