Oregon sustainable agriculture land trust


It’s the giving season  and we have a lot to offer…

OSALT is the only statewide Land Trust in Oregon focused on preserving land for sustainable agriculture. Every day we lose fertile ground to development and the trend will continue. OSALT offers a sound option to landowners wanting to leave a legacy in the preservation of their land. This fundraiser supports our Legacy Fund which is dedicated to covering the costs of managing our existing properties as well as expenses related to land acquisitions. We rely on the charitable giving of our community supporters. Thanks for 20 years of helping us preserve land!


Donate Land

OSALT will assess your land to determine if its a good match for our Trust and support you in the process of title transfer if accepted


Get Connected
