Why Southern Oregon
Oregon has historically been a leader in developing new programs that forge the way into previously unchartered territories. From environmental issues to the right-to-die when suffering from a terminal illness, the people of Oregon have shown significant progressive-foresight and a willingness to explore new paths.
The Southern Oregon region is poised for tremendous growth over the next half century. Quality of life, temperate weather, vast recreational wild lands, low crime rate and generally favorable living conditions, make this region one of the most desirable in the entire nation. Understanding that growth can be both a good and bad thing, we are determined to help encourage the growth of this region takes place in a responsible and progressive manor.
Today's Sustainability Momvement
The sustainability movement of today is not a fad, not some far-flung attempt by the hippies of the sixties and seventies to create some communal utopia haven. Regular everyday people across this vast land are buying organic, shopping at farmers markets, using supplements to doctor themselves, installing solar panels and geothermal or wind generation and learning to fight for our country's environment health.
We are on the verge of a new frontier, an epitome transformation, an adventure into the possibilities of a brighter tomorrow.
