ROOT Out & About

Kuvy and Edible Denver magazine Publisher Ashley at Denver’s Bowl of ‘Zole event last month! 🥣🏅

Kuvy and John spent 3 days Gunnison, CO where they led a Brand Alignment & Visioning Session for 10 food hubs and other big hearted, hard working people championing local food in SW Colorado and beyond. Some special moments from the trip included tours of Guidestone Colorado’s Historic Hutchinson Homestead in Salida, and their Community & School Farm, where they learned about everything from high tunnels to floating hydroponic gardens.

We had a blast celebrating Megan’s birthday at Uchi Denver. Soft shell crab, temaki rolls, spring spritzers and more! 🦀
