Farmworker Families Need Your Help

Southern Oregon was devastated by unprecedented wildfires on September 8, 2020. The Almeda and Obenchain Fires turned thousands of homes in to piles of ash. Our farms and farmworkers were hit hard--and need your help to recover! 

Make a tax deductible donation to support a long-term, sustainable community housing project for our farmworkers and their families.



With the outpouring of support of generous donors from around southern Oregon and around the world, we have raised over $300,000 to help farmworkers replace their homes lost in the Almeda and the South Obenchain fires and have awarded seed grants directly to 46 families.

The remainder of the funds are being reserved to support a long term affordable, sustainable housing solution for agricultural workers in the Valley. We are engaging and investigating with other community organizations on long term solutions and will be sending updates as things progress.


Learn more on our Fire Relief Fund page or contact us to get involved in this project.

May 20th is a special day for Our Community: 

On May 20, 2014, voters passed Measure 15-119 establishing the GMO ban ordinance. On the same date one year later, May 20, 2015, we defended the ordinance in federal court and won!

Our Family Farms is still here protecting Jackson County's Seed Sanctuary!
