Interactive workshops engage participants in discussions and activities about healthy food and cooking. Workshops tyipcally last two hours but can be adjusted to fit circumstances. We gather information about participants ahead of time an effort to best tailor activities to participants’ interests and needs.
We host programs at Zenger Farm or partner locations in outer southeast Portland, with locations closest to the farm given priority.
