Stress Assistance Program (WRASAP)

Black Oregon Land Trust

We support beginning BIPOC farmers in building foundational skills and accessing supportive trainings, as well as bridging existing Black farmers with resources for funding to support their land stewardship. We are in the beginning stages of developing a network of Black farmers across Oregon to bridge farmers with financial education skills, potential investors and resources, and community mentorship and infrastructure support.

The Farm Collaborative

We manage a farmer tool library with specialty farm equipment for rent including a potato harvester, walk behind tractor, All-Crop harvester, and more. We offer a housing library renting out tiny homes to be used for seasonal on-farm housing (must be approved by each county). Our farmer incubator program consults people that would like to try farming as a profession. After a year as an intern on the farm, incubators will learn about crop planning, business planning, and seed ordering and implement their own plot and business plan. Incubators will be able to use farm equipment and infrastructure and learn about land leases and land opportunities in the area.
