Now, add the fact that all this fun will benefit the newest community gathering space in East Portland: Zenger Farm’s Urban Grange.
Now, are you in? We are, and here’s why…
At Zenger Farm, students of all ages learn about and connect to agriculture, animal husbandry, and the natural fit between responsible farming practices and a healthy environment. Zenger’s new Urban Grange building will give more people the chance to learn and grow in this unique place.
So. Why is Independence Gardens
Our company’s mission is to help people create better relationships with their natural and built environments. Although we work in diverse ways to further that mission, empowering our clients to grow their own food remains at the heart of our business. We know that this is one of the best ways to create and sustain relationships—with ourselves, with each other, and with land.
We are grateful to be part of a network of businesses, non-profits, government agencies, and other organizations in this community who also see it that way. Zenger Farm is an especially inspiring partner for our community, and its Grange will be a focal point for our shared work.
The Grange broke ground on July 23, and our goal is to help raise $5,000 toward its first year of operation. And you can help.
