Colorado Mountain College in Steamboat Springs has a lot going on with the Sustainability Program and the Cullinary Program. Last Routt County Roots Episode we saw how that relationship worked in a community stetting. This episode we see how that relationship works in a college setting regarding the development of CMC’s Bear River Greenhouse Project.

Routt County Roots

What do you get when you combine the CMC Culinary Program with the CMC Sustainability Program? You get one amazing CMC power duo. What do you get when you combine one amazing CMC power duo with local non profit organizations and local food suppliers? You get a local food revolution.

I was lucky enough to be part of an amazing collaborative event between some major players in the Steamboat community and this video sums up how CMC is already taking its new degrees to new frontiers. The following video is called “Yampa Valley Roots – Episode 2″ and its here to change the world.

Fasten your seat-belts.

Perseid Meteor Shower

August 21, 2013

Once a year, the Perseids descend upon our planet and put on a lovely show for those with a dark enough sky to enjoy it.

This year, myself and my friend Gabriel T Rogers spent three days sleeping the woods chasing the most amazing angles of the meteor shower.

I ran into a CMC student (Yampa Valley College at the time) from the 1960′s and he was kind enough to let me interview him! This was right before the infamous Diamond Hitch Parade.
