September 9, 2010 - Celebrate what is special about living here in western Nevada County when you join us on Wednesday, Sept. 15 at the Holbrooke Hotel to hear two speakers who are very active in the “think local” movement. BPW-NC is pleased to present two women whose workplaces are not your typical business office: a community-based non-profit and a local farm.

Mali Dyck is a leader in the sustainability movement of Nevada County. She partnered with the Alliance for a Post-Petroleum Local Economy (APPLE) of Nevada County to write a business plan and secure seed funding for the APPLE Center for Sustainable Living, located at the entrance to the public parking lot on Commercial Street in Nevada City.

Her vision for the APPLE Center (www.apple-nc.org) was to create a physical hub where her community members could meet, learn, share, and connect to a more sustainable lifestyle. Mali currently serves as the Executive Director of the APPLE Center.
