The problem with that? Commercial agriculture and global seeds are full of chemicals. Here's where Jared Hagood, owner, and founder of Lineage Seeds, comes in to preserve, promote, and educate why local farms should, and do, use locally adapted seeds.   Another challenger taking on an environmental issue is Brittney La Gesse. Inspired by the zero-waste movement, La Gesse opened Refill Revolution, a Boulder store specifically created to spread the message that reducing waste is not only essential but easy and accessible. The simple solution? Refilling bottles from home with all-natural products.   We also got a chance to get behind-the-scenes with three young and talented

start a revolution HOW BRITTNEY LA GESSES’S NEW STORE REFILL REVOLUTION IS LEADING THE CHARGE TO HELP BOULDER REDUCE WASTE.

ARTICLE KELLI RUHL | PHOTOGRAPHY KARA DEYOUNG BRITTNEY LA GESSE IS DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY. Inspired by the zero-waste movement, La Gesse has opened Refill Revolution, a Boulder store specifically created to spread the message that reducing waste is not only essential but easy and accessible. Drawn to Boulder because of the beautiful outdoors, La Gesse moved from Wisconsin two years ago to enroll in a herbalist program. Once here, however, she quickly found herself drawn into the zero-waste movement. Instagram influencers like @bezerowastegirl inspire her, and, as La Gesse states, “once you know, there’s no going back.” Her path pivoted, and the seeds for Refill Revolution got planted. La Gesse began with a tent at Louisville’s summer street fair before launching a full-service website. She wanted to bring awareness to the movement, and to take the temperature of the public to determine whether or not a brick-and-mortar store was feasible. She found that interest was high, and Refill Revolution’s doors officially opened in October 2017. Within the bright, airy walls of the store, customers will find a broad range of all-natural products. From laundry detergent and essential oils to vintage goods and pet supplies—Refill Revolution offers it all. And, just as the name implies, customers can bring in their bottles from home—even an old pickle jar will do—to fill up with the product of their choice. No jars on hand? The store also sells a wide range of starter containers, which are endlessly refilled. Either way, no containers end up in the trash. In fact, La Gesse only sells products that won’t end up in landfills; even products that are not necessarily reusable must be sustainably packaged. Chapstick, for example, is wrapped in biodegradable tubes. Though many Boulderites are keen on making eco-friendly choices and buying organic food, La Gesse points out that there is still a “disconnect.” People need to consider not just what they buy, but how it is packaged. Her goal is to get people to ask the question: where does this come from? When I’m finished where will it go? While many are intimidated by the zero-waste movement, La Gesse wants to make it clear that it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. As she explains, “we are going to make trash—it’s impossible not to—the goal is simply to make less.” In her quest to reduce waste, La Gesse began by doing a few simple things. As she notes, “Small choices make a big impact”—and Refill Revolution is the perfect place to start.

LA GESSE'S SIMPLE TIPS FOR REDUCING WASTE: • Refuse plastic straws. If you like drinking out of straws, invest in a stainless steel, bamboo or glass reusable straw. • Bring your own reusable bags to the grocery store. • Bring a reusable coffee mug or water bottle to use in lieu of single-use cups. • Use a bamboo toothbrush and refillable floss containers. • Compost! • Check out a Zero-Waste 101 class at Refill Revolution-class details can be found on the store’s Facebook page IG: @THEREFILLREVOLUTION Address: 3350 Arapahoe Ave, Boulder Website: TheRefillRevolution.com

DID YOU KNOW, MANY OF THE PLANTS YOU SEE ON YOUR DAILY RUN OR BIKE RIDE ARE ACTUALLY EDIBLE? That's right, whether harvesting dandelions in an open field or using a field guide to carefully identify wild porcini mushrooms during the rainy summer season, Boulderites have a wealth of ingredients in their own backyards. “Edible greens are perhaps the most versatile and are easy to identify and harvest,” says Tori Hartsoe of Wildcraft Kitchen. “On any given hike in the Boulder area, you can find wild lettuce, purslane, mustards, chickweed, and more.”  Add these to salads, smoothies, pestos, omelets, or stir-fries, or use aromatics such as yarrow, mild mint, bergamot—even spruce or juniper—to wild herb blends and finishing salts. “Elderberries, wild plum, and chokecherries are usually ready to harvest late summer. Canning and preserving jams, jellies, and infused honey will last until next year’s harvest," says Hartsoe.  “If you are lucky enough to find wild asparagus or rhubarb growing along farm roads and irrigation ditches, use just as you would if bought from a store.” This long-held practice of foraging, otherwise known as ‘wildcraft,’ has forever been relied upon by humanity as the only source of food. Though many of our modern cultivated crops are relics of their distant ancestors, as a whole, we have disassociated the two. “In my mind, foraging allows us to bridge that gap by building awareness, connection, and appreciation to where our food is sourced,” Hartsoe says. “Utilizing what is indigenous to our environment brings a whole new meaning to the local food movement.”

SPICY ZHOUG WITH WILD GREENS

Originating in Yemen, this Middle Eastern condiment is similar to a chimichurri. This versatile recipe can be used as a marinade, salad dressing or as a spread on any sandwich. One of my favorite ways to use Zhoug is to serve atop plain Greek yogurt with an assortment of fresh veggies and flatbread for dipping. -Tori Hartsoe

I N G R E D I ENTS • 1.5 cups cilantro • 1/2 cup blanched wild greens or 1 cup fresh wild greens • 1/2 cup avocado oil • 2 serrano peppers, deseeded • 1 tsp cumin seed • 1/2 tsp cardamom • 1/4 tsp salt

WILD MUSTARD SEED VINAIGRET TE

All throughout the foothills of Boulder County, you will find various species of wild mustard growing during the spring and summer months. Mustard is one of my favorite foraged edibles due to its abundance, ease of identification, and ability to add a pungent but familiar flavor to any dish. -Tori Hartsoe

INGREDIENTS • 1/2 tbsp mustard seeds • 4 cloves roasted garlic • 2 tbsp wild or spring onion • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar • 1/2 cup avocado oil  • 2 tsp honey or maple syrup  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard or wild mustard flowers (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS In a dry skillet, toast seeds over medium-high heat until fragrant. Add seeds and all ingredients but avocado oil to a blender and blend on high until pureed. Reduce speed to medium and slowly add oil until emulsified. Add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a mason jar and store. 42

Song of the Rockies


WOOD BELLY, A LOCAL DENVER BLUEGRASS BAND, WRITES AND PLAYS MUSIC INSPIRED BY COLORADO’S STUNNING MOUNTAIN LANDSCAPES. The group can trace its beginnings back to the Rockygrass Festival in 2015, where Chris Weist (mandolin), Craig Patterson (guitar), and Chris Zink (dobro) first met one another. In the year that followed, Aaron McCloskey (banjo) and Taylor Shuck (bass) joined in. Since then the band has been collectively writing and playing bluegrass songs that unite the history and simplicity of traditional bluegrass with modern songwriting elements. With their debut album, Solid Ground, set to release in May, this is an especially exciting moment for Wood Belly. This month we talked with the band members about what called them to Colorado, their mutual love of bluegrass, and their creative process.

PLANTING THE SEED ARTICLE MARLEY JERANKO | PHOTOGRAPHY LADD FORDE

Boulder Lifestyle | April 2018


WHY LINEAGE SEEDS WANTS TO HELP GROW WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT SEEDS ALL OF THE FOOD THAT YOU ATE TODAY, ALL OF THE CLOTHES YOU’RE WEARING, AND ALL OF THE AIR YOU’RE BREATHING AT THIS VERY MOMENT: ALL START WITH A SEED. These are just a few reasons why Jared Hagood, owner, and founder of Lineage Seeds, believes that this tiny, shell-coated sphere is the foundation of life. But not everyone loves seeds as much as he does…yet. Here’s why: “Seed is sold to the same people—farmers and gardeners—and it’s all sold in the same way—little paper packets sold in grocery stores and greenhouse stores,” says Hagood. The truth is unless you’re looking for them, seed isn’t something most of us come in contact with. But, it wasn’t always like this. GETTING DOWN TO THE ROOTS As Eric Skokan, owner of Black Cat Farm (a Lineage Seeds producer), points out, “If you go back fifty years, almost all the seed was produced regionally. Now, I can order seeds on-demand, and if I’m willing to pay extra for shipping, I can get it within 24 hours. With the advantage of global seed, purchasing comes a lost desire for locally adapted seed.” The trouble is that “The best agriculture comes when we’re searching for round pegs to go in round holes,” Skokan explains. “Commercial agriculture is not a part of that search because you can always apply enough chemicals to make that square peg fit into the round hole. "Locally adapted seed is the ultimate round peg.” The way Hagood puts it, “Seed is an essential industry that needs some marketing innovation.” DIGGING UP THE PAST I think I’ll learn how to farm, thought the then twenty-one-year-old Hagood, that’s going to be important no matter what happens; no matter what country I’m in; no matter what language. So he did. But six years into his vegetable farming career, this calling demanded something deeper. “I thought, I need to learn seed production, not just food production. That’s where all this starts.” Hagood spent the following four years as an apprentice.  “In that process, I found one of the most incredible relationships I’d ever experienced: this relationship to seed," says Hagood.  “I saw an opportunity where I was like, what if I could sell seed to people who’ve never bought seed before? Well, how would I do that?” SPROUTING NEW LIFE At the foundation of this product, is a local seed bank of over 1,000 genetics grown and kept by Rich Pecoraro, Hagood's primary seed mentor. There would also need to be more support for seed work, more education, and one other crucial element. “I’d need to make it cooler and give it a modern upgrade.” “I’d need to make a really badass package design: something that’s a piece of art so that people will want it just because it stands out,” Hagood says.

PLANTING THE SEED

(CON TI N U ED)

What’s unique about the label is that it highlights the name of the farmer and where that specific package was grown. “It gives credit to the farmer, but allows for transparency for the end consumer,” says Hagood.   That’s a big change from an industry that’s accustomed to reselling wholesale seeds with a different brand slapped on the front. Ultimately, this mission hopes to inspire future generations.  “Our culture has the tendency to say, ‘I don’t have time,’ or ‘I have a brown thumb, I’m going to kill it.’ We want to help heal that relationship.” “You don’t even need to grow anything— just be closer to seeds—be keepers; it has value just sitting in your home. It will add value to your life if you have a home seed bank." Find Lineage Seeds in some of your favorite Boulder spots: Cured, Wonder Press, Trident Booksellers and Cafe, Moxie Bread Co., Lucky’s Market, and more. The company is currently looking for a business partner both for the product and to maintain this collection of seeds for  future generations.

REAP WHAT YOU SOW REAP WHAT YOU SOW

A LOOK AT THE SEED CYCLE Vegetables are either an annual or biennial. This means they complete their reproductive cycle in either one or two seasons.  Lettuce, tomatoes, beans, arugula, and peas are some examples of annuals. Carrots, beets, onions, kale, and cabbage are some examples of biennials. These plants will store over the winter and in their second season, flower, and produce seeds (yes, carrots flower!). Here are the five key phases of a seed cycle... GERMINATION. The seed sprouts and produce a tiny, immature plant called a seedling. MATURATION.  The seedling grows into adulthood and forms a mature plant. FLOWERS. The mature plant produces flowers. FRUIT.  The flowers are fertilized and produce seeds in a fruit or seedpod. DEATH. The plant eventually dies, leaving seeds which germinate to produce new plants. To put it simply, plant a seed, let it flower, pollination happens, seeds form, and you harvest the seed. Voila!

Many use this season to clean the home, purging unwanted clothing and deep cleaning items not scrubbed, squeegeed or vacuumed since last year.

SPRING CLEAN

YOUR MIND

Yashoda Devi Ma and Victoria Larkins

CO-FOUNDERS, THE SUBTLE MIND TheSubtleMind.com

Through a wide spectrum of workshops and meditation options, visitors to The Subtle Mind find a holistic approach to developing mind, body, and energy in a space curated to be fresh and modern. Options include Vedic meditation courses, conscious living workshops, and events, kirtan, art and sound meditation. Co-founders Yashoda Devi Ma and Victoria Larkins both have challenging experiences in their pasts, and, through these techniques, have found it is possible to move through any discomfort—financial, emotional or physical—that show up in life. “When we have a clear mind, we can process life at a more optimal level allowing us to live radically alive,” says Larkins. “This is living from the heart.” The choice to clean your headspace is a matter of priority. With 1,440 minutes in a day, finding time for just two 20-minute meditation sessions should be easy. After all, this time spent reflects on all aspects of your life, helping achieve organization, creativity, and happiness—your best self.

+

BEGIN WITH JUST 5 MINUTES It is better to do something than nothing. After a week or two, slowly increase your time per session, but there is no need to exceed 20 minutes at a time.

+

GET COMFORTABLE It is best to learn meditation from an expert who can show you how to sit with your back supported on a couch, bed or favorite chair. Close your eyes, tune into your breath and relax.

+

BE ACCEPTING Thoughts are always a part of meditation. Know that it is part of the process, but don’t try to do anything. Practicing the act of accepting your thoughts and letting them go will translate into life, and you’ll be able to manage things that come your way better.

+

BE CONSISTENT Judge your practice not by what happens while your eyes are closed, but as you navigate your days. With consistency, you’ll soon find you are more accepting, organized, focused, and happy. CONTINUED >

SPRING CLEANING

SPRING CLEAN

YOUR HOME Organized physical space leads to a more focused and enjoyable lifestyle, according to Sheryl Hadley, owner of Organization & Relocation, Inc., a professional organization and moving preparation service. After 13 years in the business, Hadley has seen the astounding positive changes in a family’s or business’ happiness and efficiency after they choose to get organized. A firm believer that beauty and efficiency are essential complements to each other, Hadley—a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals since 2005 and past president of the Colorado chapter for two years— says of any organization system, "If it doesn't look good, it's not going to function well!"

+

AVOID GETTING OVERWHELMED Set aside 10 minutes to walk around with a bag collecting things for donation. Doing this weekly or monthly helps overcome the sense of not wanting to start a huge project if there isn’t time to finish. It also frees up mind space to focus on your priorities.

+

THINK BEFORE ADDING ANYTHING NEW Whether it’s a pretty vase or something larger, before bringing anything new into the home, ask yourself if it is worthy of taking up physical and mental space in your life. Ask, “Do I use it, do I love it, do I appreciate it?” Skip or immediately get rid of anything that doesn’t pass this test.

+

IT'S OKAY TO HOLD ON Though minimalism is trendy, sometimes there are practical reasons to hold onto things and have them take up closet space. In the case of acquired family heirlooms, the cleaning process can be emotional and take time. By establishing this as a priority, you give yourself patience and can keep items until you’re ready to make decisions.

HOT SPOT

Taco Taste Off ARTICLE RILEY COWING PHOTOGRAPHY MICHAEL RAINERO

WHILE “TACO TUESDAY” IS A HOLIDAY THAT CAN BE CELEBRATED YEAR ROUND, THERE IS SOMETHING SWEETER ABOUT ENJOYING A PLATE FULL OF DELICIOUS TACOS IN THE SUN, ACCOMPANIED BY A GOOD BEER AND EVEN BETTER COMPANY. Since there are tons of tasty options, we reached out for some guidance to assemble some patio-ready pairings. Bradford McDevitt, of McDevitt Taco Supply in Boulder, was more than willing to show us the ropes. Plate after plate of tacos was presented to be washed down with a series of refreshing beers on draft at the restaurant. Each round of tacos boasted colorful combinations of vegetables and innovative use of spice that stood up to the wide variety of beers imbibed, from a tart saison to light, raspberry blonde ale, all from local breweries.

Boulder Lifestyle | April 2018


Each course was unique, from the ingredients utilized to the style of beer, but a common theme was spice. The taste test began with a Baja-style, fish taco topped with a Southwest style ginger slaw that packed a punch. The fiery flavors continued through each course, causing our judges to find relief in their pint glasses. Time and time again the beer cut through the mouthwatering spice a particular taco presented. McDevitt Taco Supply began with a taco cart in 2011 set up on Pearl Street Mall. They expanded to music festivals in 2012, Sanitas Brewing in 2013, and catering other events such as weddings. As demand in business grew, they decided they needed their own place to call home. In 2017, they opened their brick and mortar in the Meadows on the Parkway shopping center and have found it to be infinitely easier to operate their carts and business from one, designated home base. McDevitt explains that often people come to the restaurant with expectations of an authentic, Mexican food experience. But from their name to their menu, McDevitt Taco Supply intentionally avoids the traditional. He hopes to create a new facet of food and push boundaries with the unique combinations available on the menu.  As we learned during the taste-test, stretching beyond expectation can leave taste-buds stimulated and hungry for more.

CHALLENGERS

ROUND 1 —

Taco: Baja-style fish taco featuring a North Atlantic cod, topped with Southwest style ginger slaw Beer: Saison Reposado from Sanitas Brewing Company  ROUND 2 —  Taco:  Braised pork belly taco topped with pickled onions and an avocado and tomatillo salsa Beer: Bareback Blonde Ale from 4 Noses Brewing in Broomfield ROUND 3 — 

"NO OFFICER—I'VE ONLY HAD ONE TACO."

Taco: Green chile and chicken taco topped with a prickly pear cactus salad including corn and bell pepper  Beer: Independence Pass IPA from Aspen Brewing Company in Aspen ROUND 4 —  Taco: Chocopotle taco (chocolate chipotle ground beef) Beer: Allgood Amber Ale from Bull & Bush Brewery in Denver  DIGESTIF — Mezcal as one would in Mexico by sprinkling mealworm salt on the tongue, sipping Mezcal, biting an orange wedge and finishing it off by crunching into a dried grasshopper 

FINDINGS

Every pairing had its highlights but there was resounding

enthusiasm for the first course — the fish taco paired with the Saison Reposado. Our experts really enjoyed how the ginger shone through the other flavors of the taco. The tart, citrus finish to the beer made it an instant, patio favorite. A close runner-up was the pork belly taco with the Bareback Blonde Ale. The richness of the pork belly was relieved by the clean, almost bitter and fruity profile of the beer. Each expert commented on their love for pork belly, making it an easy one to love and enjoy off the bat.

Two mentors help the girls along their journey. Tanja Leonard, who originally got involved with Recycled Runway when her youngest daughter was a participant in Recycled Runway 3, and Rachel Lubanowski, who holds a B.F.A. in Fashion Design. Even with the mentors, there’s no hand-holding in the six-weeks that the participants have to create their designs, even though many have never had formal training in sewing design. Alexander says that every year she is impressed by the new designs and unexpected materials being shown on the runway. “They’re really looking further than just a plastic bag, or the obvious choice,” Alexander explains. "In the past, this has been everything from Nespresso pods to bike rims." Rosalind Wiseman, the author of Queen Bees and Wannabees (the source material for Mean Girls!), will be returning as MC this year, and tickets are sure to sell out quickly so get them while you can! Proceeds from the show will go to Blue Sky Bridge, a local nonprofit that focuses on child and family advocacy, helping child victims, and offering crisis support for non-offended family members.

BOURBON TRAIL FIVE BANGIN’ BOURBONS (YOU CAN ACTUALLY FIND)

ARTICLE ANDY MANZ | PHOTOGRAPHY KYLIE FITTS

AS IF I NEEDED SOMETHING ELSE TO GEEK OUT ON AND OBSESS OVER (CRAFT BEER, CAMPING GEAR, SKI GEAR, GUITARS), I RECENTLY FELL IN LOVE WITH BOURBON AND ALL THE RICH HISTORY THAT ACCOMPANIES IT. As with most of my hobbies, I usually try to find the absolute top of the line, then start deciding if the price is worth the product. In my initial research, and going down many YouTube rabbit holes, I quickly realized that most of the uber-premium Bourbon selections are so highly allocated, they never even hit store shelves. In the Bourbon world, these rare, hard to find gems are often referred to as “unicorns.” If you want one of these unicorns, you can hope to luck out in a store lottery, or pay eight to ten times the cost on the secondary market. Neither are extremely attractive. The good news for Bourbon fans is that there are dozens of amazing offerings out in the wild that are readily available. I recently had the pleasure of catching up with Max Girardin, from Hazel’s Beverage World, to get an expert’s advice on what we should be adding to our collections. Visit HazelsBoulder.com for more information, or simply stop by the store and visit with Max and the staff to guide you through your next bourbon purchase. 94

LARCENY HENRY MCKENNA 10-YEAR SINGLE BARREL 100 PROOF $34.99 Max Says: A laundry list of things I look for in a good whiskey. The 100 proof gets tempered down nicely in the ten-year aging process. It’s also “Bottled In Bond,” which for Bourbon nerds, is very important.

92 PROOF PRICE: $21.98 Max Says:  This wheated bourbon is for people looking for the classic, buttery, creamy notes, which are often found in the Weller lineup. Definitely the easiest drinker in this lineup, and a perfect entry level for someone dipping their toe in the world of Bourbon.

OLD FORESTER 1920 115 PROOF $59.98 Max Says: This Bourbon dances across your tongue. While the high proof can be intimidating, there are so many good things going on, and the finish is long and satisfying. Much easier to drink than it’s proof would suggest.

A.D. LAWS FOUR GRAIN SINGLE BARREL ANGEL’S ENVY 86 PROOF $53.98 Max Says: The port wine finish gives this selection a lot of depth and complexity. Smooth, easy drinking. Dark fruit, baking chocolate. This is also one of my favorite bottles to recommend as a gift, because of the bottle presentation.

95 PROOF $59.98 Max Says: This uses corn, wheat, rye, and barley, which most distillers aren’t doing anymore. 100% of the grains used to make this whiskey are Colorado sourced, including the water (Eldorado Canyon) to finish. We get to hand select the barrels of this that we put on our shelf, which makes it even more special. April 2018 | Boulder Lifestyle
