Join us as we put together our first "Made In Cascadia" regional directory! "Made in Cascadia" is a project dedicated to raising awareness of groups, organizations, and businesses that are made or grown in the Cascadia bioregion. Help us connect sustainable and ethically produced goods with awesome Cascadians around the Pacific Northwest.
On September 25th CascadiaNow! is excited to announce that dozens of community living enthusiasts joined and were inspired at the launch party for our first ever fiscally sponsored project - The Living Bus Project.
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!
