If you’d like to continue the discussion of APLS name and the overall (trans)formation of the group, please check out Green Bean’s latest post on the subject.

The group has the potential to create widespread change during a very important and volatile time in our lives. My hope is that the group will decide upon a name, and then work hard toward building local groups of people all working together toward helping one another live sustainably… and even more importantly, work toward helping our local communities become sustainable. It will take work, it will take struggle, it will take coming out of all our shells and comfort zones. But it is important. So I do hope that those of you involved will push to make this happen. Add your voice.
