Project Background
The Small Farm Incubator Project is exploring a new approach to land ownership that supports regenerative, local, organic farming.  Recognizing that young farmers have little or no access to secure affordable farmland, we are developing a model of farm living where a community of younger farmers have access to long-term leases, and farming families are benefiting from shared resources onsite.  We are planning to build a small community of diverse and independent farming families living on and off-site, farming and stewarding between 40 – 100 acres of farmland within 15 miles of downtown Portland.

Narendra Varma is the brains behind the operation, bringing a wealth of knowledge relating to permaculture and micro-finance, and a passion for crafting a project that abundantly provides for the people and the land. www.communitybydesignllc.org

Jenny Pell is a permaculture teacher, designer and consultant, who helps strengthen communities by re-introducing skill-sets that support thriving and abundant neighborhoods, happy and healthy people, and a biodiverse landscape. www.permaculturenow.com
