The Sauvie Island Center (SIC) is a non-profit organization educating youth about food, farming and the land. Located on beautiful Sauvie Island just outside Portland, Oregon, SIC provides Portland area youth with educational field trips, summer camps, family programs, open spaces and a connection to the land.
Through our field trip programs, elementary-age youth learn about farming and its relationship to the land through exploration of compost piles, farm fields, and native plant habitats. We hope to create an understanding and appreciation of the natural and human systems that grow food while teaching through hands-on exploration.
