Looking to find land & start eco-community in Southern Oregon

Howdy all!

So some great humans and myself are looking to find some land in southern Oregon at the end of summer to start developing a giant food forest and community buildings on. Any helpful hints or suggestions on where to start looking for ways to get this land? We have been thinking of trying to find somewhere near Ashland, OR as it is always good to be close to a nice town. We have a little money, but loads of skills so money shouldn't be an issue after we start. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Howdy Eric, welcome to permies.
Here is a website I like. Might give you some ideas of land in that area?

Eric,
Land in Ashland is VERY spendy. Try going towards Williams, Applegate, and Illinois Valley. It's a yuppie College town, I used to live in Corvallis and it's the same thing.

How’s your search going? Still looking? If so, let me know. I have some land outside Ashland that could be a good fit.
Peace
