All Tribal offices will be closed Friday, December 8th.

The Garden Program is a new program being developed by the CTSI Siletz Tribal Community Health Clinic to steward a 38-acre property into a diversified organic practicing farm that provides healthy food options and cultural opportunities for Tribal members. The program seeks to improve the health of our community and Siletz Tribal members by providing access to clean organic produce, outdoor recreation, and culturally congruent activities in a safe space.

The Garden Program is directly under the Clinic’s administrative lead and reports to the Health Director. This program works closely with Community Health and many other departments, including the Diabetes Program and Natural Resources.

Stay Up to Date on Events!

We will continue to post project updates and future event opportunities on this page, our Facebook, in Siletz News and in our Siletz Community Health Clinic monthly newsletter.

The Farm Property

In 2020, CTSI purchased the property near the city of Siletz with the goal of serving some of the health needs in the community. The hope is to accomplish that by utilizing this land to grow our own foods and medicines and to restore our relationship to the land, animals, and plants.

Several improvements and construction have already been made to the property, including installing a new well and beginning a rainwater collection and storage system that will serve as our irrigation. There are plans to construct a large greenhouse structure and a 5-acre fenced in main garden, along with additional improvements and features.


5213 Logsden Rd. (Second drive past mile marker five)

The stewardship of the land is guided by a Garden Committee, the needs of our community, Traditional Ecological Knowledge pathways, and a variety of internal and external partnerships. Half of the landscape is designated wetlands with wetland meadows, shrub/tree wetlands, and a seasonal creek that is being stewarded to host and enhance habitat for native plants and animals with a focus on Beaver habitat. The front half of the landscape has been historically cleared and grazed into open pasture which is being stewarded to fulfill the Garden Program’s needs. The program has installed a rainwater catchment system that will serve vegetable and plant production, a 5-acre garden with an exclusion fence to deter grazing animals such as Elk and Deer, a greenhouse nursery for plant and vegetable production, various facility and access renovations for programming activities, and are creating a Garden Master Plan that will continue to guide the future activities in the landscape.
