The B Street Living Museum Story
The B Street Living Museum project site is located on a Metro-owned property less than a mile from the Pacific University campus in Forest Grove, near the B Street bridge over Gales Creek (at 1155 B St., for the purposes of GPS or mapping programs).
The B Street Living Museum is an emerging grassroots organization and demonstration site whose mission is to provide inspiration and information about environmentally sensitive, sustainable living practices for Pacific University students, city residents, local schools and other Forest Grove community members. Site projects engage participants in community building, research, and demonstration for the purpose of providing the impetus for sustainable practices in the Forest Grove community in accordance with permaculture principles and ethics. Read about B Street Living Museum in the Pacific magazine.

The B Street Advisory Council
The purpose of the B Street Advisory Council is to provide guidance and feedback regarding programming and utilization of space at the B Street Living Museum.

The council is asked to listen to and honor student voice, in balance with other interests in the program.
