Carol Parks (she/her)
Food Roots Farm to School Education Specialist
Education & Procurement Regional Hub Coordinator
Food Roots' mission is to grow a robust and equitable food system in Tillamook county (and the north/central coast) through community engagement, education, food producer support, and improved access to local food. Garden based educational activities and school district procurement of local products are two integral components in the work to build linkages among farmers, educators, families, organizations and agencies, and anyone else interested in making our local food economy stronger.
Carol recently moved to Tillamook County from Florida and is excited about hands-on education in school gardens, equity and access to food systems, connecting local producers with school lunch programs, and supporting rural community resilience through farm to school programming.
