West Multnomah Conservation District provides free technical support for both organic and non-organic farm operations to reduce the use and cost of fertilizers, install pollinator hedgerows, add cover crops to planting rotations, improve soil quality and production, decrease pests, improve irrigation and achieve organic certification.

The District also provides technical assistance to district residents who own and/or manage cattle, horses, sheep, llamas and other animals. We help you write conservation plans to improve land productivity and animal health. Issues include pasture, mud and manure management, over-winter areas for livestock and horses, and the establishment of trails and watering facilities away from natural streams.

Our farm activities focus on these major categories:

Organic and conventional farming

Stables/Horses & Livestock

Pasture Management
