SAGE Garden Service Project

Students took part in a service project at SAGE Garden, a unique community garden that donates food to local food banks and soup kitchens. Every year, SAGE supplies between 3-4 tons of organically grown produce to agencies and families all over Corvallis. SAGE also holds classes and programs. Our volunteers helped contribute to this great program and learned about food distribution systems and programs around Corvallis! C E Week SAGE volunteers

Civic Engagement is about caring about our communities, people, and the environment and place we share. Students can make a difference through community service, leadership, becoming educated citizens, and advocating for change.

Take time to learn social issues and current events, community service opportunities, and the benefits of community engagement. Most importantly, thank people you know who are civically engaged for all the good things they have done to make the world a better place.
