Community Connections | Geoffrey Grimmer (Education)I had the absolute pleasure to sit down with Geoff Grimmer of Zealous Schools in downtown Eagle to discuss the way he's shaking up the "learning landscape". Zealous Schools is an independent MicroSchool teaching 6th-8th graders. Their mission is simple: to develop healthy citizens, critical thinkers and zealous learners.
"Since the launch of Zealous in September of 2017, we have had dozens of super-exciting conversations with many creative people looking for a new and better education for their kids. While creativity is thinking up new things, innovation is doing those new things. This flagship learning center in Eagle, CO will integrate the latest in education theory, seeking to harness the passions and strengths of kids while delivering dynamic learning experiences that extend beyond the walls of the classroom.
Our commitment to quality is reflected in the 5:1 ratio of students to staff. We seek to deliver on the promise that so many schools have made, to personalize the learning experience to each student. A thoughtful admissions process along with ongoing mentorship from highly-caring staff will help us sculpt a new level of learning for our kids in grades 6-8. Our innovation seeks not to be measured by the computers we harness or the flexibility we create, but by the preparedness of our kids as they advance towards the next stage of life and academia. There will be nothing fancy about our education philosophy, which seeks to develop healthy citizens, critical thinkers, and zealous learners.” - Geoff Grimmer

Community Connections | Jenny Veruchi (Luxury Home Rentals)I have personally worked with InvitedHome over the last several years and I can attest to their amazing differentiation over many other companies. Their tagline is "Hospitality Elevated" and boy, do they deliver!
**EXCLUSIVE** - I have an exclusive offer for my clients only who choose to place their home with InvitedHome. Contact me for the details! (970) 471-5233
"We started InvitedHome to reintroduce a virtue that’s been missing from the vacation rental industry for years: Trust. We believe in doing what’s right, even when no one is looking. For homeowners who entrust their vacation homes and rental management to us, that means practicing genuine care, for the home and its owners, at all times. It means thinking creatively to drive more rental revenue, and explore avenues others haven’t. It means moving mountains for homeowners to earn their trust, and celebrating their successes alongside them.
Trust is equally vital to our guests. You can’t take back a bad vacation, and guests rely on us to get it right the first time. Everyone on the InvitedHome team holds each other accountable for upholding that commitment to our guests, and when the unexpected arises, we deftly navigate issues, identify root causes, and implement solutions. We’re a hospitality company at heart, and strive to show this in every interaction.
We’re not here to revolutionize the vacation rental industry. We’re here to passionately care for the homeowners we serve, generate revenue for them while preserving their home’s long-term value, and provide guests a place to spend an unforgettable vacation.
We’re InvitedHome, an employee-owned and family-run company specializing in luxury vacation rentals in mountain resort destinations, including Telluride, Vail, Breckenridge, Park City, and Lake Tahoe."

Farm To Table - Buttercrunch Farm | Eagle, COYou guys! I recently had the pleasure of visiting Buttercrunch Farm in Eagle to check out their beautiful produce grown through the system of Aquaponics. This innovative farming technique uses about 90% less water than traditional agricultural farms and they can produce the same amount of product in 3,000 square feet as others can in 4 acres! Can you believe that?
Aquaponics is a growing technique where both fish and plants are grown together in the same system. The waste from the fish is what fertilizes the plants and the plants in turn clean the water that gets returned to the fish.
Peri and Rob are growing some of the most picture-perfect organic lettuce and micro-greens that I’ve ever seen. They also sell farm fresh, organic eggs that from their chickens that are fed a diet free of corn and soy. I’m not kidding when I say that these are the best eggs I’ve ever tasted! Some of the best restaurants throughout the Vail Valley feature their local produce and the farmstead is only open to the public on select weekend days from 12-4pm. Make sure to check out their farm and learn more on their website and social media!
