Mountain Roots

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.
