Shoots with Roots

shoots with roots emblemShoots with Roots began in 2003, as an intergenerational gardening program where local school-aged children learned side by side with volunteer garden mentors in our Children's Food Garden.
The program has since expanded to include explorations of our local Douglas-fir forest, adventures in the Artist's Garden, and a wide variety of hands-on learning activities throughout Milner Gardens & Woodland.

Each year approximately 300 local school children participate in our Five Visit School Program, while others come for single-visit field trips or get immersed in nature and gardening during spring and summer break daycamps.
