Developing farming collaboratives on 10-100+ acres in Western Oregon


The Resilient Communities Project is organizing small land-based collaboratives that:

  • Regeneratively grow, process, and sell a variety of farm products 
  • Practice cooperative self-reliance
  • Support the healing and well-being of their members and the wider community
  • Maintain simple, affordable, low-impact dwellings 
  • Sequester more carbon than they emit

We have a number of landholders in our project who are seeking the right people with the character, motivation, and diversity of skills to establish small prototype Resilient Communities together. None of us needs to know everything. We do all have to possess the maturity and mental stability to live and work together for the common good. Since these qualities are not so common these days, we will have to be selective about who we join together with, as we hope you will want to be, too. 

There will as a result be a thorough process of getting to know one another before anyone makes any commitments. We will first determine if our purposes are aligned. If so, we will formulate and agree upon sensible guiding principles from which to base personal behavior, collective decisions, and mutual accountability. Once we have formed we will employ effective processes, structures, and leadership to navigate the many challenges we will face, as any new venture must do. The organizing team has the experience and skills to facilitate all of this. 

The foreseeable future will be stormy. The best way to navigate those storms will be with a small, capable group who can take care of each other while providing necessary farm products to the wider community and showing others a way forward. If this sounds appealing to you and you have appropriate land skills to bring to the party, let’s talk!
