Permaculture

A goal for the Veganville property is to be a permaculture example of sustainable organic farming. Permaculture is the development of an agricultural ecosystem that is sustainable with the greatest amount of self-reliance for any given area, property, or community.

To begin achieving this, Veganville is having the land surveyed, applying for a Fruit Orchard Grant and implementing fund-raising for fencing the perimeter, animal enclosures, and garden plot.

With 36,770,958.98 gallons per year of rainwater collection potential annually, nitrogen rich soil, located in USDA Zone 8a, and solar/wind energy source capabilities, Veganville has a unique opportunity to utilize the land to it’s maximum potential.

Good land management requires a beneficial relationship with the local ecosystems. For Veganville, this includes keeping part of the property wild.With over 20 endangered species in the area, Veganville is committed to preserving a wildlife conservation area on the property.On January 17, 2018, Veganville became a Certified Wildlife Habitat® with the National Wildlife Federation and the Oregon Association of Northwest Steelheaders.
