OSALT is unique across our nation as one of the few organizations that holds urban and rural land in trust to promote sustainable agriculture. OSALT does this by acting as an umbrella organization that provides land, management processes and non-profit status to local communities for sustainable food production through gardening, farming, research and education. OSALT is now protecting in Trust more than $4 million in urban and rural agricultural land assets, and provides ongoing opportunity for community groups and organizations to benefit from mission-aligned and locally supported land access and agricultural practices.
