Project Description

Zenger Farm Urban Grange

Zenger Farm is a working urban farm that models, promotes and educates about sustainable food systems, environmental stewardship, community development and access to good food for all.

Prosper Portland has been a longtime supporter and partner with Zenger Farm, providing close to $800,000 in financial support over the years for farmhouse renovations, the community-supported agriculture program, the community garden, and most recently the commercial kitchen and office spaces of the Zenger Farm Urban Grange. The Grange project, which received $300,000 in Community Livability Grant funds, aligns well with the agency’s Strategic Plan and work to strengthen neighborhoods, encourage entrepreneurship, particularly among underrepresented populations, and reach out to our most vulnerable citizens to help with food security and healthy eating.
