• With the Sustainable Living Expo, we will bring together all the different members of our emerging sustainable community under one tent; we will provide opportunities for learning, listening and conversation; and we will offer a venue for networking, engagement and collaboration. Join us for this one-day exposition of workshops, exhibits and events promoting sustainable living in the Champlain Valley! (click the image on the right to visit our SLE 2015 webpage)
Growing community together in Addison County.
ACORN's mission is to help revitalize the health of our land, our local economy and our local communities so they can provide sustainable sources of food, water, energy, employment, capital and other essential resources.

What We Do

Project-based Approach

Addison County Relocalization Network serves as a catalyst for developing local, sustainable and collaborative solutions to the challenges facing Addison County communities from the growing instability of our energy systems, environment and economy.

ACORN’s mission is rooted in the observation that we have entered a disruptive chapter in our human story that we call the “transition,” a period of great cultural change and opportunity. More about ACORN…
