Alliance for a Post-Petroleum Local Economy (APPLE)
APPLE envisions an economy that functions in harmony with our regional ecosystem, meets the basic needs of our residents, supports a just and democratic society and fosters a joyful, diverse community life.
To achieve this vision, APPLE is working to facilitate reduced dependence on fossil fuels, and to promote a more self-reliant local economy in Nevada County, California.
We work to educate and empower individuals to take personal action toward a more sustainable lifestyle. We collaborate with community groups, business owners, and local government officials to develop the economic and policy opportunities which foster resilience.
Our goals are to raise public awareness, and to ignite projects which foster newly complementary and sustainable energy-environmental-economic-and-social paradigms.
