Thank you Leadville, for a great party for the planet.

Great job to our 2016 Green Champions, including the Lake County School District transportation and Custodial Staff for their dedication to composting initiatives, and to Independence Realty and Property Management for their support of local energy efficiency programs. Over 100 people attended the Party for the Planet last Friday night to celebrate Earth Day and our Green Champion Winners. Thanks to Groovespeak for the music, and to HarperRose Studios for hosting. Also thanks to local businesses that donated revenue on Earth Day, including Melanzana, Cycles of Life, Community Threads, Cookies with Altitude, Leadville Outdoors, High Mountain Pies, City on a Hill, and HarperRose Studios! What a great community show of support for the environment!

We did it!

Thank you to the 15 donors who helped us reach our goal to raise a total of $1,000 in local funds for the greenhouse and farm by April 22nd.
