Who We Are

Our Group

We are a handful of Applewood neighbors who meet monthly to work on initiatives that connect to sustainability in Applewood.

We consider which programs feel most important to our sustainability values. We align programs with our personal and collective interests, while focusing on the sustainability areas of water, air, land, energy, and community.

All Applewood community members (neighbors, business owners) are welcome to be a part of our group and to attend meetings.

Meetings

We meet on the fourth Monday of every month. Click here for more information if you’d like to attend our meetings!

About the Sustainable Neighborhood Program in Lakewood

This programs helps neighbors become active partners in making Lakewood a vibrant and sustainable community. Neighborhoods participating in this unique certification program use guidance from City staff to organize workshops, projects and events that enhance the livability of their neighborhood and reduce residents’ ecological footprint.

Program participation can enhance the environmental and social strength of a neighborhood while demonstrating commitment to sustainability in Lakewood. In addition, the participation benefits may include recognition from City Council, neighborhood signage, education and an increased sense of community.

We are called to assist the Earth to heal her wounds and in the process heal our own—indeed, to embrace the whole creation in all its diversity, beauty, and wonder. This will happen if we see the need to revive our sense of belonging to a larger family of life, with which we have shared our evolutionary process.
