A.P.P.L.E. Seed Inc Logo ColorA.P.P.L.E. Seed, Inc. is a publicly supported, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) educational organization founded and incorporated in 1996 by residents of Brookfield, Massachusetts, and dedicated to the betterment of the greater Brookfield community as a more welcoming and desirable place in which to live. We sponsor educational and charitable projects promoting the arts and humanities, provide an outlet for communication and the sharing of ideas, and strengthen cooperation among locally-based groups and municipal committees through the creation and organization of coordinated community efforts.

To that end, A.P.P.L.E. Seed has for 17 years published The Brookfield Citizen, a 16-page monthly newsletter written and edited entirely by volunteers and mailed free of charge to every household in Brookfield. Each month the Citizen carries columns, articles and announcements on a variety of subjects, including local current events, history, and cultural and arts activities in the area. Members of A.P.P.L.E. Seed initiated the George Washington Memorial Highway Trees Project, raising funds for, planting and maintaining over 80 flowering Kwaisan cherry trees along Route 9 from the West Brookfield to East Brookfield line. In 1995, in conjunction with Earth Day, we organized our annual Operation Clean Sweep, which each Spring sends dozens of volunteers to Brookfield’s highways and byways to pick up and dispose of trash and litter on the town’s roadsides and sidewalks.

A.P.P.L.E. Seed has also assisted with the cultural and educational activities of other like-minded local nonprofits, such as the annual Apple Country Fair, an event held by the Brookfield Community Club on the town’s historic Common each Columbus Day weekend and which draws busloads of visitors from all over New England.

We believe in the power of ordinary citizens working together to create and nurture that intangible quality known as “community,” as expressed in our slogan, “Average People Promoting a Loving Environment.” We welcome suggestions and ideas from the community. Anyone wishing to join our organization can contact President Phil Peirce at (508) 867-9553, or speak to any one of the Board members listed below for more information.
