<![CDATA[Boulder - Weekly - Special Editions]]> <![CDATA[Space for change: Coworking spaces sustain entrepreneurial community]]> Coworking spaces are not your typical offices. You won’t find any cubicles and there are no bosses. A mobile application developer might work at the same table as a natural foods marketer, both sharing one common denominator: a sense of a professional community.]]> <![CDATA[Playing hurt]]> Many people identify strongly with their favorite sports. Because of that passion — or obsession — we get used to playing hurt. It’s not unusual to see people scaling the walls at the climbing gym with a soft cast on their leg or watching runners zip around trails with their arm in a sling.]]> <![CDATA[The dirt on reusing soil]]> In places where winters can get harsh — and there will be at least a couple of harsh winter weeks here on the Front Range — soil will expand and contract, so a mindful gardener will want to empty plastic, ceramic or clay containers to prevent them from cracking.]]> <![CDATA[Edible education]]> Ever feel bloated or gassy after eating? Maybe you have unexplained fatigue or muscle aches? The cure to what ails you might be as simple as taking a closer look inside your refrigerator.]]> <![CDATA[Full backpacks, full stomachs]]> As the temperature drops and the leaves change color, kids around the nation get back into the swing of school. For some students it means little more than early mornings and evenings lost to homework, but for others, it means knowing they won’t go home hungry — at least during the week.]]> <![CDATA[Processed food nation]]> “I first started writing about the food industry about 10 years ago,” Warner continues. “When I started talking to people in the field of food science, they started telling me all these crazy things about the incredible technical complexity that goes into making our food.]]> <![CDATA[The plentiful bounty of fall]]> We go beyond food to look at how Colorado hemp farmers struggle to grow this newly regulated (and highly useful) crop, the difficulties the marijuana industry confronts in producing a truly organic product and how one century-old building is leading the way in sustainable architecture.]]> <![CDATA[Fish food]]> The Aquaponic Source, a company based out of Longmont, hopes to increase the number of aquaponic systems being used in classrooms across that nation with their new Grants for Plants Foundation, but some Boulder County students are already reaping the benefits.]]> <![CDATA[Boulderganic Summer issue is here!]]> As residents of the Centennial State, we know Colorado is beautiful — from the farms of its sweeping eastern plains to the rugged, snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains to its semi-arid southwestern chaparral deserts. It’s not hard to understand why Colorado is the fourth fastest growing state in the nation.]]> <![CDATA[Hemp Industry Overview]]> What if we just woke up one day and corn was outlawed?” asks Eric Hunter, president of the Rocky Mountain Hemp Association. “Imagine if 80 years down the road corn was illegal. There go chips, corn syrup, plastic cups.]]> <![CDATA[When it pours]]> <![CDATA[The need for seaweed]]> “A robust dose of marine minerals, specifically iodine via the potent variety of sea vegetable, is the most effective way to increase iodine naturally and balance the thyroid,” says Sue Van Raes, a nutritional therapist, health coach and founder of Boulder Nutrition.]]> <![CDATA[City, Xcel square off over solar, wind programs]]> The latest skirmish in the municipalization battle between Xcel and the city of Boulder revolves around solar and wind energy programs.]]> <![CDATA[The magic five]]> I’ll be the first to admit it’s easy to let a few pounds sneak on over the winter. The opportunity to feast without (immediate) remorse around the holidays doesn’t help. It’s not until we try that first real hike or bike ride of the spring that it becomes obvious we’re a little off our game.]]> <![CDATA[Cracking down on fracking]]> <![CDATA[The artist in everyone, anywhere, from anything]]> Talk to El Anatsui about the thousands of bottlecaps used in his artwork, and he’s less concerned with the obvious problem — yes, these were garbage headed for landfills that now hang on museum walls — than the issue they represent for his community.]]> <![CDATA[Local living]]> <![CDATA[Green your grill]]> It’s a tradition that’s quintessential to summer. It just doesn’t quite feel like summer until you’ve tossed a few burgers (maybe a couple portabella caps for the veggie crowd) on the grill, a cold beer in one hand and tongs in the other. But few of us ever stop to think about the environmental impact of our summer barbeques.]]> <![CDATA[Growing past the flood]]> Though more than six months have passed since the September flood that destroyed homes, displaced roads and scarred landscapes, remnants of the flood still mark the land of Boulder County in the form of erosion and sediment deposits. Farms, gardens and backyards with flood damage may need to be assessed or even tested for growers to determine what needs to be done to their property to restore its condition for another growing season.]]> <![CDATA[Fiber problems]]>
