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

A Message from our President

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…
