Schedule a meeting! calendly.com/robcatofzf
Zenger Farm is making a commitment to staff and organizational wellness by switching to a 4-day work week in 2023. My schedule is Tuesday through Friday and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Zenger Farm currently sits on the territory of the original peoples of this land - the Clackamas band of Chinook, the Multnomahs, the Tualatin Kalapuya, the Wasco-Wishram, the Willamette Tumwater, and many other tribes who have lived and traveled along these two Rivers. This area was originally populated by many Indigenous people, who lived and thrived in profound, complex, and interdependent relationship with the land and the other beings here - long before white colonial settlement. The Indigenous people are still here, and are still connected to this land.
