ShareCorps- Community Roots- Summer Farmers Market
 
 
 
Community Roots uses an abandoned greenhouse nursery and accompanying six acres as the site of community programs that target horticultural, agricultural, and land stewardship programs. We are seeking to: - Support local school science standards (e.g. STEM education goals, etc.) through hands-on nutrition, food science, and food production studies. Support and supplement existing agricultural & horticultural education (eg. 4H, FFA, OSU Extension-Knox) by offering community growing space at little to no cost - Partner with the Knox County Health Department and Creating Healthy Communities (GetHealthy Knox) on increasing access to fresh foods. Offer wilderness skill-building programs (e.g. wild seed saving, plant identification)
