WHAT WE DO
A Greater Applegate is engaged with people across the Applegate watershed to envision and create our community’s future. A Greater Applegate’s Board of Directors, committee members, and volunteers are working together to make a stronger, more connected, and greater Applegate. Recent accomplishments include:
- Expanding our role from Park Stewards to Community Builders as A Greater Applegate (AGA), formerly known as Greater Applegate Community Development Corporation. A Greater Applegate is supported by a Community Builder Partnership Grant from The Ford Family Foundation to create and manage community networks and a community visioning process.
- Launching Applegate Valley Connect, a free community website in partnership with The Applegater. Applegate Valley Connect features a calendar, local business and organization directory, volunteer opportunity portal, media access, and much more. Connect to it at applegateconnect.org.
- Creating the Applegate Valley Nonprofit Network to provide a space for our local nonprofit organizations to learn from each other, pursue collective interests, and increase our impact through community building.
- Enhancing Cantrall Buckley Park by focusing on new park improvements, such as solar education, integrated art, and increased engagement with schools and families.
A Greater Applegate is strategically developing essential internal organizational capacity while outreaching to the community, actively listening to learn, and planning together to create change.
