When thinking of the lifestyle cultures that we share as part of the Cascadia community, agriculture culture is definitely one of the aspects that every Cascadian should be aware of if not a part of. With features like advantageous geographic features, weather conditions, and residents deeply invested in buying local, the Cascadia bioregion is an obviously place for an agriculture culture to develop.
Building on an amazing 2015 Founding Membership campaign, and after our first full year of operating as an official non-profit, we are excited to bring back a permanent, awesome CascadiaNow membership to support this great idea, organization and movement.

CascadiaNow! is delighted to announce that through an unanimous vote of our board of directors The Living Bus Project has become CN's first ever, completely official, 501c3 umbrella's project! The Living Bus Project is a self-contained and closed-loop "tiny house" inspired by the Living Building Challenge. It is built using LEED Platinum Standards and demonstrates the possibilities for: Ecological Water Flow, Net Zero Water, Net Zero Energy, FSC Certified Lumber, Alternative Biofuels, and Environmentally Friendly & Sustainable products. When completed, they will use the Living Bus as an educational tool, teaching workshops and giving presentations to communities and schools around Cascadia!
