This is very much a working draft, so please feel free to give feedback so I can flesh it out more. Also feel free to re-post it and such, it’s just something that I want to get out into…

The Grange Halls and the growing Cascadian network

The Grange Halls and the growing Cascadian network

Another Cascadian and I have joined our local Grange Hall last night. Several other self identified Cascadians have explored the Granges and we have concluded that together the Grange Movement and the Cascadian Movement could revive our local economies and create a new socioeconomic system that is resilient and very much embracing bioregionalism. Whether it’s the Cascadian Movement or the Grange Movement the essential core focus is actually community. In an age of corporatism and…

Cascadian Bioregionalism: Secession vs. World Revolution

Cascadian Bioregionalism: Secession vs. World Revolution

As a bioregionalist my goal is NOT to create another nation-state or another series of political boundaries on a map for cartographers to make a living.
