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 over 20 years of helping us preserve land that’s too small for other land trusts and too precious to lose as an agricultural, ecological and educational resource.


Considered making a Donation of Land?

OSALT will answer your questions about options for leaving a legacy through land access for growing and learning. We can assess your land to determine if its a good match for our Trust and support you in the process that we come to agreement on to benefit generations to come.


Get Connected

OSALT relies on a network of volunteers to support and maintain many of our properties. Join our team of farmers, gardeners, designers and community members for COVID-conscious volunteer opportunities in 2021.
