2018 Veganville Happenings

Greetings from Veganville!  Spring is arriving to our coastal mountain property and we have been planning and working away to achieve some milestone objectives this year!

Veganville Property Design

We now have our vision planned out for the property and how to best utilize every inch of the land to suit our mission. Veganville strives to become an example of sustainable farming utilizing permaculture methods. 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.

We are also working on our first animal enclosures. One being our chicken coop and the other, a half-acre enclosure connected to a small barn. We are very excited to welcome our first rescues this spring so stay tuned for news and ways to help us out with this. We are planning on hosting work parties on the property every third Sunday of the month now through September.

We are continuing as a host farm for WWOOF-USA and accepting WWoofers through October and renting out RV Hookups through TryItTiny, AirBNB and Hipcamp.

We are very excited to start our third year as an organization achieving some mission milestones and thank everyone out there for your continued support. We look forward to what the year has in store for us!

Please consider donating to Veganville here.

 

 

 

We are Tax Exempt!

We are so excited to let you know that Veganville is now officially a Tax Exempt 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization!

 

We received our articles of non-profit corporation status in February of 2016, purchased the property in June and worked very hard to apply for our tax exempt status in December of 2016. Any donation made to Veganville since February of 2016 is now officially tax-deductible.

We are diligently working on fundraising and grant opportunities to begin building safe enclosures and shelters for our first rescues. With the Oregon coastal storms starting in October through March, summer is the time to be working hard on the property.

If you’re interested in getting involved or helping us start-up the sanctuary, you can do any of the following:

  • Volunteer your time at the farm.
  • Spread the word about Veganville by sharing Facebook posts and/or passing out brochures.
  • Donate resources such as essential farm tools/equipment.
  • Donate to our gofundme or directly to PayPal at ceciliamialon@veganvilleoregon.com
  • Purchase needed items from our Amazon Wishlist
  • Any feedback or ideas are always welcome as well.

We are hosting a work party this Sunday July 30th from 10am-2pm and also a camp out Meteor Shower viewing Saturday August 12th.  Please reply with any questions or if you are interested in these events.

Thank you!

 

Veganville (No) Meat & Greet

Just a few weeks in the area and we are thrilled at the amount of support Veganville has received from the Portland community.  We hosted our first event on Sunday June 26th to give the community a chance to come and meet us and answer questions about our vision of becoming a farm animal sanctuary and eco-village as well as our time line of how to get that started.
