The Appleseed Co-op
“I draw my idea of the form of government from a principle in nature which no art can overturn, viz that the more simple any thing, the less liable it is to be disordered...”
- Thomas Paine, Common Sense
Connect with your community
We are committed to providing a means to serve our communities with integrity and trust...
Connecting people and resources in a reciprocal community environment is what Appleseed Co-Op is all about. From vegetables and milk, homeschooling and healing, mechanics and carpentry, we are here to assist in making those connections with you.
In this spirit, we are actively building networks within communities by connecting people and businesses through the Appleseed Almanack...
And to love Him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as himself, is much more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.
To sow the seeds of love and truth into communities...
...together, we lead the way for neighborhood restoration, economic reciprocity and mutual support, by encouraging the use of regenerative practices in agriculture, arts, education, trades, healing exchanges and accountable local leadership.
Just like the story of Johnny Appleseed, we are committed to sowing the idea and values of Appleseed Co-op aournd our nation and the world. Seeds of spiritual growth and maturity, seeds of knowledge and truth, seeds of generosity and compassion, seeds of gratitude and thanksgiving, seeds of artistry and culture.
Appleseed Co-op is dedicated to this endeavor and relies on the guidance of the Holy Spirit to direct all things pertaining to this enterprise. We rest in the saving grace of Jesus Christ and the provision of all things through our Father's love.
Live simply, simply live.
Regeneration Through Generations
In the tradition of many profoundly healthy communities, it is the interaction between generations that preserves both the culture and wisdom of a people for generations to come.
All programs are completely self-funded through donations of both in-kind services and goods along with cash donations with transparent and public accounting of all resources.
The components of different activities will vary depending on the number of participants, resources, unique community needs, etc.
Functioning similarly to a private membership organization, a covenant based around the Golden Rule shall be agreed to and signed by each participant.
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.
- 2 Corinthians 9:8
Food and its sourcing is one of the essentials of life. The rewarding tasks of growing gardens, raising lifestock, preserving foods and preparing meals offers a way of peace and unity within ourselves and our communities. Helping them to be bountiful and thrive by breaking bread and growing together,
The awesome responsibility of educating the next generation is taken very seriously and an enthusiasm for lifelong learning is nurtured. Providing a well-rounded education, teaching our children to explore using logical thinking to discover the truths and life skills, by parents and educators in the communities is of utmost importance and will be supported.
Values grounded in the scriptures and doctrines of the Bible, ministered and taught by community members to others. As in the upper room, gatherings in homes, outdoors in camping areas or wherever the Holy Spirit leads, are encouraged. That there be sharing of the Scriptures to discover the pure essence and truth Father God gives us to walk in. To grow and learn as a people and be made more powerfully into the image of Christ. Iron sharpens iron.
Healing comes in many forms. Trust in God, for his love will guide and provide wisdom and insight for healers of all modalities to come forth and offer their skills in support of their communities.
Shared activites and mentoring between and amongst multiple generations is critical to community longevity and preservation of culture, history and critical life skills.
Employment, apprenticeships and bartering arrangements that provide meaning and purpose while promoting commmunity interaction, supporting local businesses and trades people with the goal of creating an active reciprocity economy.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
