On October 30, 2023, Joe Brewer and Penny Heiple, Design Pathway for Regenerating Earth, will be joining the Cascadia Bioregional Activation Tour organized by Clare Attwell and Brandon Letsinger for meetings with residents of both Skagit and San Juan Counties. This tour is a powerful example of clear vision combined with local action.

Using bioregions as its central organizing principle, Regenerate Cascadia ‘is working to address the social and cultural causes of the climate crisis to undo the cultural and ecological damage caused by colonization and overconsumption.’ “Regenerate Cascadia is approaching Climate Change, not with a solution, but with questions. We hope that through an emergent process, we will come together to share ideas and solutions. But who has a seat at the table? What voices are missing? What are the new forms of best practices, protocols, and governance to use for making these decisions?”

“The Cascadia Bioregional Activation Tour offers a month filled with presentations, workshops, and field trips in 14 locations and is capped by a Bioregional Summit. It starts with the premise that ‘the work that the world needs is already happening in our communities.

The Tour comes to Skagit and San Juan Counties on October 30. The main live event will be held at Skagit Valley College in Mount Vernon in Lewis Hall 311, 5:30-8pm and will be streamed to residents in both counties. We also have permission to use “Classroom C” on upper level at Skagit Valley College/San Juan Center in Friday Harbor with a capacity of 25-30 people. ADA access is available through the lobby. The majority of parking is down below the building. Access to lobby and restrooms will be available as well. To find out more, including how you can get involved, visit the Activation Tour page on their website and contact the organizer: Larry Greene Navigating Our Future Ph: 360-378-3123

None of us have the entire picture, or ‘the solution’, but together, we have many solutions already active. How can we greatly empower this work?’

Let’s work together for a stronger community!
