Mountain Roots is a local educational non-profit that provides discovery and outdoor learning experiences for youth, teens and their families in Transylvania County. It operates 50 weeks a year providing programs for every local public elementary school and summer day camps for children, as well as leadership and group development retreats and workshops for community groups and schools. In a digital era, Mountain Roots provides a safe place for children to make connections to a better understanding of themselves, their community and the wonders of the natural world that surround us. Lake Toxaway Charities grants have helped fund school gardens and gardening lessons to teach kids how to grow food at home or be involved with one of the community gardens in Transylvania County, as well as scholarships to day camp for families.
Each month we plan to feature a selection of our 45 supported agencies, each is an organization that inspires us and is in need of our support.
This September we wish to shine a light on these three remarkable organizations: Free Rein Center, Mountain Roots, and the Mountain School of Strings. In the days ahead, follow us for more information on each of these supported agencies and how your donations directly benefit these worthy organizations.
