A Greater Applegate (AGA) is the community-building organization serving the Applegate Valley. AGA’s work is guided by local residents who are encouraged to voice their needs, resources and perspectives through a variety of means: surveys, listening sessions, and outreach events. We like to say that A Greater Applegate is a place where community values, community vision, and community voices lead to community action.
The Applegate Valley is defined geographically by the Applegate River. The river’s headwaters flow from the Siskiyou Mountains of Jackson County to its confluence with the Rogue River in Josephine County. Numerous tributaries define the various Applegate Valley “neighborhoods” — including Little Applegate, Upper Applegate, North Applegate, Carberry Creek, Humbug Creek, Sterling Creek, Thompson Creek, Provolt, Williams, Wilderville, and others. Neighborhoods along each of these tributaries are both distinct and part of the larger Applegate Valley community.
