Want to Volunteer?
You can volunteer to help us…. collecting scions, grafting or planting, putting up fencing and installing irrigation, the tasks are endless.
If you have particular knowledge that you believe could assist us in better establishing the TOC orchard, we would love to hear about it.
If you live in the Portland, Oregon area and would like to volunteer at Almaty Farm, please register your enthusiasm on our Contact Us Page.
You may not be able to do the physical work, please consider helping us out monetarily so that we can buy the necessary supplies.
The fencing grant received from the Lillian Goldman Foundation was gratefully accepted and speedily used. The Dunlap Block for the baby trees is fenced and gated, and the 17–acre Botner Block is fenced and sports five beautiful gates. The fence is an 8–foot tall deer–proof fence built by Statewide Fence Company, and it is absolutely beautiful.
The permit for the agricultural well was received in May 2017. Thanks to another generous donation from Cary Fowler and Amy Goldman, drilling was completed and the pump installed in 2018, and the well and irrigation system is up and running.
Each year the number of trees planted increases. Words cannot express our thanks for the generous donations and for the dedicated volunteers who make all this possible.
