Gorge Owned (GO!) is a member-supported organization working to strengthen connections between people, ecology and economy as a way to build a healthy community in the Columbia Gorge.
We do that through numerous programs, including the Sense of Place Lecture Series, Gorge Green Drinks, the Gorge Green Home Tour, Gorge Bike Commute Month, GO! Local Month, and by hosting films, educational workshops and raising awareness about the impacts of individuals’ and businesses’ purchasing decisions, behaviors and practices.
Why are we interested in this work? We believe that education and connection (to people, information and resources) lead to citizen empowerment, which drives community investment, engagement and positive change.
GO! is a member of the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE)
