Currently, we have Gorge Grown (support and coordination for local ag with emphasis on organic), Dirt Huggers (for-profit compost, currently at 3,800 tons per year), a couple of food co-ops, Riverhours (local currency project), MARS (Mt. Adams Resource Stewards - a forest products incubator), and a number of other complementary projects (e.g., CSAs, Firewise wood-waste chipper program, Collaboratives on the local National Forests).
The 'City' of Stevenson is working on a local compost program - possibly a Dirt Huggers' franchise. Part of the idea is to reduce the organics load in the sewer treatment systems for two towns.
I'm writing a feasibility study for a woody biomass CHP system that will supply heat and electricity to at least a greenhouse system for late Autumn, Winter, and Spring, plus an industrial wood products business in the Summer and Autumn. Focus is to maximize efficiency via a narrow range of design for energy outputs correlated to a narrow range of energy requirements of the 'customers'.
Meantime, I will send the link to the growingpower.org to the local participants and to the Portland-based co-ops and government stakeholders.
