The powerful winter storm that just passed through our area closed schools and made traveling difficult. Also slowed by the storm was a young Common Loon Gavia immer pictured above. It must have quite a story of how it came to rest near Aspen Village earlier this week.
We are working to raise $30,000 for a kitchen at Rock Bottom Ranch to support our Farm to Table dinners, cooking classes, and sustainable agriculture production and education. There is a giving level for every budget (from $10 to $10,000). Participate in this crowd-sourced campaign and share the link on Facebook and your other networks to help spread the word.
