We are looking for individuals interested in ecologically, socially, and economically regenerative farming systems to be a part of our 39-acre farm/camp located 35 miles east of Portland, near Sandy, OR. Our vision is to build a eco-agriculature system that will ultimately include approximately 8 acres of silvopasture/native oak/maple savanna, 2 acres of orchard/food forests, 2 acres of herb/flower gardens, 20 acres of native forest and wetland, and 4-6 camp sites. We are hoping to find individuals interested in doing farm work (e.g., animal management, orchard planting and maintenance, garden management, camping/event coordination, construction and maintenance work etc.) in trade for farm housing or space to set up your mobile housing unit. In addition to part-time work-trade, you could set up and operate your own enterprise on the farm. In particular, a native plant nursery, herb/flower business, mushroom operation, or a pastured animal (chicken, duck, geese, sheep, goat, hog) enterprise would be very compatible within the current farm structure.
We have 1-2 spots for a hook-up for a tiny house or other mobile housing unit. The hook-up provides a 20 amp circuit and a hose line connection to well water, but no septic – you must set up and maintain a composting toilet system. No phone, internet, or trash service provided.
Collaboratively design and implement a regenerative, closed-loop silvopasture/orchard production system. We have broad plans for farm layout, function and design, but want to work with partners to refine these concepts into detailed plans for a multi-partner, multi-enterprise system.
A thoughtfully designed and carefully tended farm community and regenerative agri-ecosystem built to honor and cultivate wild beauty, sacred earth, and community values of cooperation and socially and ecologically responsible living.
Most of the property - about 20 acres - is rewilding native forest (15-20 year old trees), wetland, and prairie. There's a fence around a 12-acre area in which we have 1.5 acres of annual vegetable production, fruit/nut tree plantings, and berry fields. Animals could be pastured within the 12-acre fence or surrounding areas.
Access to farm shop and shared/communal spaces.
Tractor, truck, and basic farm equipment available.
Because of our elevation (1600 feet), hot weather vegetable crops do not do well here, but leafy greens and herbs thrive.
