B Street Living Museum

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.


We envision a vibrant, thriving, and just community that provides for its food, water, and energy needs through informed stewardship of the ecosystems within our bioregion.


To provide inspiration and information on resilient and sustainable systems through demonstration, exploration, and discovery for the learning communities of our bioregion.

Our Values

We are guided by a collective value system that includes respecting the earth’s geophysical processes and limitations, caring for the earth’s living communities, and distributing the abundance of renewable resources in a fair and equitable manner.
