The 2019 Cascadia Convergence took place July 5-7th at the North River Reserve in Brooklyn Washington, and was a wonderful time for Cascadians to come together to connect, share and learn. This year saw vendors from around the region, a 30 foot yurt being raised as a future classroom, and discussions by Free Cascadia, Your Cascadia, the Department of Bioregion, Olympia Ecotopians, and Seattle CascadiaNow on creating a centralized backbone for coordinating ideas, resources and events. The Department of Bioregion also provided the Cascadia Bus to help get everything down there.
