Seeking Land for Farming and Outdoor Education

Land Seeker Description

Hello,

We are looking for 0.5 – 4 acres of land for lease. We want to tend an orchard (apple, cherry, peach), grow flowers to sell, harvest wild herbs and mushrooms from a nearby forested area, and grow vegetables.

Ideally in SW Portland, closer to the river. We are open to NE Portland, North Portland, and SE.

Ideally, with some trees (hopefully orchard trees,) space for 5-7 cars to park for gardening groups, and space to garden.

We would also like to use the space for a small learning pod, 5-12 students at a time.

Our ideal location would be more than 3 acres of land,  running water, permission to put a portable bathroom, and so have access to woods.


What features of the property are essential?

electricity, access to water (well or city), rights to build simple structures that could be easily taken down.


Describe your farming experience

I've worked on a CSA non-certified organic vegetable farm. I've done a bit of flower gardening. I'm very interested in orchard space and being near a forested area where we could harvest mushrooms and wild herbs.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

Flower garden, vegetables for personal use, orchard, and things we could sell at a farmer's market.


What are your long term goals

We want to eventually buy land to farm and sell produce at a small farmers market. Ideally near a nature reserve or large park to take walks in and forage.


Describe your housing needs

We don't need housing. Just a place for our community to meet together and grow food. We don't need a shelter but can easily build something small that could be removed after the lease, like a shed or gazebo.
