Legal Details

In 2005, Tryon Life Community Farm was recognized as federally exempt 501(c)3 organization. See advance ruling and determination letters, attached below. TLC Farm collaborates with several other entities to tend this land; the Oregon Sustainable Land Trust (OSALT) holds the legal title to the land; TLC Farm has a 99-year land lease in common with Cedar Moon, a residential worker collective and intentional community on the land.  Cedar Moon is incorporated as an LLC, and is legally and financially independent from TLC Farm (though many residents are core volunteers with TLC Farm).
