Get to Know Us

Create. Promote. Preserve.

AdkAction creates projects that address unmet needs, promote vibrant communities, and preserve the character of the Adirondacks. We work to limit pollution from road salt, expand internet access, conserve pollinator habitat, revitalize communities, promote artists, and improve quality of life in the rural communities of the Adirondack park.

We are a membership organization.

Members are the lifeblood of AdkAction, generating ideas, inspiration, passion, and financial support to make our many projects possible. Members pay annual fees that keep our work going, and in return, receive the pride of taking action to improve the Adirondacks for future generations.

Membership is open to all students, individuals, families, and business that are interested in the future of the Adirondacks. All paid members can vote in our elections and are invited to attend our annual meeting. Every member will receive a copy of our quarterly newsletter, and the satisfaction of being a part of solutions that benefit everyone in the Adirondacks.

Food from small-scale family farms is often more expensive than food at chain grocery stores, putting it out of reach for many Adirondack families. It is also more sustainable, ethical, and better for our local economy. We are working towards a future in which Adirondack farmers can feed the region and local families can afford to buy local food by providing a 30% discount on farm fresh products for qualifying families.

Compost for Good

The goal of the Adirondack Compost for Good project is to help Adirondack communities turn food and other organic “wastes” into high-quality compost. This process keeps nutrients in the community, which builds local resilience, heals soils, and helps reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.
