About Zenger Farm:
Zenger Farm is a working urban farm with a mission to model, promote and educate about sustainable food systems, environmental stewardship, community development and access to good food for all. We welcome over 12,000 kids and neighbors to the farm each year to participate in food access and education programs. We believe that if you care about the future of our children, that you have to care about their relationship with food as it effects how the feel, grow, learn and how long they live. We grow food for our neighbors in Outer SE Portland and create new models to get nourishing foods to neighbors who have been historically left out.
 

Stand Together Week is the Portland Timbers, Thorns FC, and T2 citywide volunteer initiative that brings the community together to support local nonprofit organizations. The week engages hundreds of supporters, including Timbers, Thorns FC, & T2 players, coaches, ambassadors and front office staff who work with various non-profits in the community. Since 2012, Stand Together Week participants have donated 15,371 hours of service at over 193 projects focused on benefitting youth
and the environment.
